Instructor: Beverly Powell

Beverly started shooting eight years ago and was hooked with the first shot.  She is an NRA Training Counselor with ten (yes count them ten) instructor disciplines and is working on number eleven.

She’s taught hundreds of women (and men too), in her NRA Women on Target programs, NRA Instructor and Basic Student classes, Utah Concealed Firearm Permit classes and Hunter Education classes.

What Beverly likes most about instructing is when she sees the “ah-ha” moments in her students and their desire to continue learning.

This course teaches the knowledge, skills and attitude essential to organizing, promoting and teaching NRA’s Basic Pistol Shooting course.

The course is presented in two parts: basic instructor training, and discipline specific instructor training. 

Students demonstrate organizational and teaching skills via participation in practical exercises during the course and complete an instructor certification examination. Students will receive the NRA Trainer’s Guide, NRA Pistol Shooting Instructor Candidate Packet and NRA Basic Pistol Shooting course student packet.


Possession of basic firearm safety and shooting skills is a prerequisite for certification as an NRA instructor. 

Prior to the Pistol Instructor training, candidates must complete the Basics of Pistol Shooting Instructor Led Training course.  

This course may be taken prior to the conference or taken as a separate class being offered September 26 at Discount Guns & Ammo.  

Other requirements include a pre-course questionnaire and successful completion of Pistol Instructor Qualification.
