Become A Certified Safety Instructor

A major objective of the California Rifle & Pistol Association is to promote and educate the public regarding safe and responsible firearm ownership and use.

Nationally, instructors provide an invaluable service in their communities by training hundreds of thousands of individuals annually. As firearm and shooting activities expand, and more Americans choose to exercise their right to carry a firearm, so too grows the need for training and education.

You can be the vital element in meeting this need by becoming a certified Instructor and teaching others the basics — the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will lead to a lifetime of safe, enjoyable and successful involvement in firearm and shooting activities.

CRPA trains and works with Instructors who enjoy working with people, want to share their firearm knowledge and skills with others, and are willing to make a commitment to teach training courses in their communities.

Your responsibilities as a certified Instructor will include:

  • Conducting Basic Courses in accordance with policies and procedures;
  • Upholding the quality and integrity of national firearm safety and training standards;
  • Promoting firearm safety and the shooting sports; and
  • Reporting training data.
