Registration Payment Options:

The NRA Pistol Instructor Candidate Training Class Fee is only $250 and it includes all of the course material needed for the day. It does not cover food, drinks, NRA instrucor registration fees ($30 for NRA members or $50 for non-NRA members) pistol usage, and ammunition (less than 50 rounds). A $50 non-refundable deposit is required for registration and it is specific for the class date that you are registering for. Switching dates, cancelations, or no shows result in deposit forfeiture. Rescheduling requires a new $50 deposit payment. Also, if a candidate is unable to complete the pre-course qualifications before the class date, the deposit is also forfeited. The remaining paid class fees can be refunded or applied to a future class date.

You have two registration payment options:

  1. Prepay the $250 class fee in whole. This option includes the $50 non-refundable deposit. The remainder $200 is refundable and transferable.  
  2. Pay only the $50 non-refundable deposit and pay the remaining $200 at the class ($250 total fee). 

If you are rescheduling, then you will need to pay the non-refundable deposit again. If you already paid the class fee, please make a comment in the comment box when registering as to what class date you previously paid for so that we can apply that payment towards your current class date, you will still need to pay the $50 non-refundable deposit to finalize registration. Absolutely no exceptions are made for refunding the non-refundable deposit.
