Default Firearm Instructors

1st of all, thank you for your service to the USA, Semper Fi. NRA is an excellent place to begin. It'll tell you where, when, to go and get the courses and certifications on becoming a instructor, RSO, coach. I'm in the process of achieving my 4th instructor discipline; IAW, certified rifle/pistol instructor, Range Safety Officer, etc. Just a suggestion for a starting point, the NRA, and I hope you'll enjoy volunteering your skills to Boy Scouts, 4-H clubs of America, others. If you can make a "living" at being an instructor or a coach, more power to 'ya. You'll see that when you seek training, most all of it will be taught by volunteer instructors. I know guys who do alright by making dollars teaching CCL classes and self protection courses part-time. The least that'll happen is being able to enjoy this gun forum. Enjoy life.

There's a lot to learn in setting up the business aspect of it, a lot of research. But there is a ton of information out there, it's just a matter of searching through it and filtering the BS. I just got out of the Corps and started my own business American Defensive. Check out the website and give me a call, and I can let you know what we had to do. American Defensive LLC

Good Luck

The guys are correct. I own my own LE training company. And the LLC. is the way to go to protect your personal property. And doesn't cost you an arm and a leg!

LLC is what worked for us. We set up our business in Virginia and the LLC seemed to be the best option.
