The NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting is intended for all individuals regardless of previous shooting experience or NRA-affiliation.
This is Phase II of the training - Phase I must be completed online prior to attending this class
There will be two assessments of the student – upon completion of the online portion and during the live portion with the instructor. A student will not receive a certificate of completion for the NRA course until the instructor validates the student’s knowledge, skills, and attitude.
This is a learning management system that integrates the course content with interactive applications, lecture, animation, and review questions. Then culminating with a final examination. The learning management system tracks the student's process in the course, records their missed answers in the exam, provides materials for review questions missed, and provides the instructor with information about the student before the instructor-led portion of the course.
The NRA Basic Pistol Course is a blended training course, which means a portion of the course (Phase I) is conducted in an eLearning environment (online), that can be completed on your own time. Upon successfully completing the online exam, students will be required to register for the instructor-led training portion (Phase II), which is to be conducted at Downtown Tactical with an NRA Certified Instructor. You must successfully complete Phase I and Phase II in order to receive your Basic Pistol certificate.
