I received the following from Doug. He was my instructor for the NRA Pistol Course and is a very professional individual. I highly recommend his training.
To my Salt Lake City alumni,
As some of you may know, the NRA has come out with a new certification for their very best instructors called the Advanced Pistol Instructor certification. In order to receive this rating from the NRA, several criteria must be met including:
1. Participate in advanced pistol training with other recognized firearms schools
2. Gain certification as a Personal Protection Outside the Home instructor
3. Provide student references
4. Provide letters of recommendation
5. Pass a written examination
If you are interested in obtaining this certification, I'd like to make you aware of several things that could help you out.
I will be teaching a Suarez International Close Range Gunfighting course at the Wasatch Shooters Association range in Kaysville, UT on September 29th-30th, 2012. This would be an example of 'advanced pistol training'. I would also like to schedule an NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home course during the month of October. Right now, the dates I am looking at are October 12-14, 2012. This would be for a combined student/instructor course.
I'd like to gauge the interest level in such a class among my former students...please let me know if this is something you are interested in.
Finally, if I could ask a favor, could you post something on the forums up there or email those that might be interested about my NRA Instructor training on August 3rd-5th? I am teaching an NRA Pistol Instructor and Personal Protection Inside the Home Instructor course. It meets the requirements to become a CCW instructor for the State of Utah. The cost of the course is $275 for the Pistol portion only and $425 for all three days.
Thanks very much...
