Your Plan To Becoming A Confident & Competent USCCA Certified Instructor!


Join the ranks of the fastest growing firearms training community by becoming a USCCA Certified Instructor.


Upon successful completion of this workshop, candidates will be certified to teach the USCCA Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals Course. 


*** This course is not intended to make you a good shooter. This course is designed to enable an experienced shooter to develop into an effective instructor. ***


The USCCA Instructor Certification course consists of a one day interactive online training course followed by two days of classroom training which includes hands-on breakout sessions before participating in live-fire range exercises. You will also learn the important skills needed to set up and run both your classroom and range.


Subject Matter Covered:

Michael Martin, Chief Instructor and author of Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals, will review the student materials provided in the Instructor Toolkit, identify important elements within the USCCA curriculum and present tips to maximize the use of multimedia materials. Instructor Candidates will learn common instructor mistakes and how to avoid them, and how to use PowerPoint to integrate the USCCA curriculum into their lessons. This course will also touch upon proper business and financial management.
