Registration Payment Options:

The NRA CCW Instructor Candidate Training Class Fee is only $375, and it includes all of the course material needed for the day. It does not cover food, drinks, NRA instructor registration fees (if any) pistol usage, and ammunition. A $100 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 $100 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 $375 class fee in whole. This option includes the $100 non-refundable deposit. The remainder $275 is refundable and transferable.  
  2. Pay only the $100 non-refundable deposit and pay the remaining $275 at the class ($375 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 $100 non-refundable deposit to finalize registration. Absolutely no exceptions are made for refunding the non-refundable deposit. 

If you choose to mail a check or money order as payment, payment must be received before registration can be completed. Returned checks are subject to a fee. 


Qualification Shooting:

There is a final shooting qualification for this course that must be passed in order to get certified. Please be sure to practice the drills in this sheet.  


Food and Drink Options:

We will do a working lunch so you have the choice of packing a lunch or you can purchase food and drinks or order delivery. Food and drink selections can be made in the classroom. 


Registration Tips:

Please register using your name as you want it on your certificate. Each participant has to register and pay separately. 

A unique email address is required for each registrant. If you do not have an email address, make up an address using @none.com for the domain. Before the class, we will send class updates through email and after the class we occasionally send law updates and other valuable concealed carry information.


Shooting Range:

The shooting range is an outdoor private range in Canal Winchester. We will end the second day at the range. The actual range address will be given at the class. It is about a 4-minute drive from the classroom. Please dress appropriate for the weather. Do not bring your firearm into the classroom.  


You are not guaranteed to pass this course. Only Instructor Candidates who pass all course requirements will become NRA Certified Instructors.
