USCCA Certified Instructor Training Workshop 

The USCCA Instructor Certification course comprises both online training and three days in the classroom and includes discussions, lecture, hands-on breakout sessions, teach-backs, a live-fire exercise and shooting qualification.

Michael Martin, author of Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals, leads the online e-learning course which is approximately 8 hours. Course instructors will cover useful teaching tips and tools, present student materials provided in the Instructor Toolkit, identify important elements within the curriculum, and lead discussions and presentations. The course will also touch upon proper business, financial management, and marketing for the course.

USCCA will send you the kit following the completion of the Instructor course.
