The Collegiate Firearms Instructor Program is a project of Students for the Second Amendment.   The goal of the program is to train college and university students to become NRA Certified Firearms Instructors.  

The Certified Instructors will then go back to their campuses to offer training to their classmates, and others interested in learning more about the safe, competent, operation and handling of many types of firearms.

Our instructors also volunteer their training services to programs outside of the academic community, such as Boy ScoutsGirl Scouts,   The 4-H Shooting ProgramYouth Hunter Education Programs,  and JROTC  organizations.

After two years serving as instructors, program members are strongly encouraged to apply to become NRA certified Training Counselors.   As Training Counselors, members will train others to become Certified NRA Instructors. 

Instructor Candidates must be 21 years of age for NRA Certified Instructor, and 18 years of age for NRA Assistant Instructor.

Instructor certifications currently offered through the Collegiate Firearms Instructor Program include:

Basic Pistol Instructor
Basic Rifle Instructor
Basic Shotgun Instructor
Personal Protection in the Home Instructor
