I'm going to be taking the basic pistol and then defense outside the home. Cost of classes is $150 each. Found an instructor 24 miles away. I going to tag onto my brother in laws NRA insurance so it will cost very little.

Believe those classes are taken in order

Certified Pistol

Personal Protection Inside The Home

Personal Protection Outside The Home

Some building blocks in PPOTH, rely on someone haven taken and being knowledgeable of PPITH.

Before you can take any of those classes, you need your BIT (Basic Instructor Training )

My training goals have all been met this year. It was a hectic schedule fitting them into a already busy workload. My CHP certification for CC instructor came Thursday, and my Instructor Victim's class was Friday.

All done for a spell, now on to teaching!

So what order should one go about doing this if they wish to teach a CCW class? That is what I am wanting to do.

My state, Nebraska only requires one get basic pistol to teach concealed carry. Everything else I did was for personal satisfaction. I want to be the most evil inmate in Obama's fema camps. Lol

In the past week, I picked up Certified Refuse To Be A Victim Instructor, and Glock Certified Armorer.

I have one more Instructor certification I want, and in a year, I will go for my red patch, NRA Counselor. Then I am done.

Mostly, I want to concentrate on students now.

Become an NRA Inst. Coach, Range Officer etc. If you really want to enter the battle for gun rights. This will allow you to have a positive influence on many people. It is a very rewarding experience.

J357, how's your progress? I was about to post load of questions when I found your list - thanks for the foundation. Thanks to all who responded, too.
I do have one of my own to all, though: how good of a shooter do I need to be in order to become an instructor/rso? I have been shooting inconsistently for about 20 yrs, difrent types of arms, mostly for fun (read: bang), as opposed to comp or defense/tactical activities. Pretty good shot, but am sure have way to go. Thanks in advance.
