Unfortunately, probably none that would be recognized by the general public or other entities.

As long as the certification course is approved by the state, that's all that matters.

The general public that are uninformed about firearms, will also be unaware that there are firearms safety courses.

You can go to the OSBI website and get a list of instructors, and call any in your area to find out if they also do instructor certification courses.

Or, go to a LGS and speak with people there.

Just because there aren't any classes scheduled for the rest of the year, doesn't mean you can't find an instructor willing to do a one-on-one (some may even prefer that).

I do agree with DenverSteve. Be patient, learn how to instruct, find an instructor willing to allow you to assist. Definitely make sure your people skills are honed (IMO more important than your ability to shoot - which is also important). Take whatever advanced courses you can (providing you have the funding).
