NRA Basics of Rifle Shooting ILT is an in-person beginner level rifle safety course - not a marksmanship or tactical class.  We recommend this course for those who are new to Long Rifle and AR-15 platforms, have limited experience, or want a refresher on basic rifle safety concepts. This objective-based class explores the important facets of rifle ownership including safe handling, ammunition, maintenance, storage, stances (benchrest, standing, prone), and basic scoping & shooting techniques.  Required prerequisites must be completed prior to taking this course.  Continued opportunities for skill development will be discussed.  Students will need a rifle (.22 caliber or greater), 100 rounds of factory ammunition (ammunition is not allowed in the classroom), eye & ear protection (prescription eyewear acceptable), and a positive attitude.  Upon successfully passing this course, including basic knowledge exam and shooting lesson, students will meet NRA Basics of Rifle Shooting national standards and will earn an official certificate of completion.  Approximately 8 hours including live fire training.  A welcome letter will be emailed within 48 hours of registration.

 

*This is course is also a prerequisite for NRA Rifle Instructor Certification (see the "Instructor Certification" page for more information).
