  • running a safe live-fire range

Class participation

You will have the chance to demonstrate your knowledge of the USCCA training material through several short presentations to a group of your peers, as well as running a live-fire range, guiding your peers through the safe completion of the USCCA course of fire.

After completion of this course, you'll not only be intimately familiar with the USCCA training methodology and materials, you'll be a far better instructor and presenter, regardless of the topic of choice.

Are you ready?

A good attitude of being a learner is a huge plus!

Give yourself plenty of time to go over the e-learning module more than once to become deeply familiar with the curriculum that you will be teaching.

Doing this work will pay off for you!

You WILL be doing presentations in class on this material to build your skills and confidence, and yes, to iron out weaknesses.

What is the cost?

Upon enrollment, you will purchase the Instructor Toolkit from the USCCA for $250 to reserve your materials and gain access to the e-learning module.

This e-learning is completed by you on a computer at home prior to classroom instruction.
