Qualifications for NSSA Instructor Certification Courses:
Whether you want to share information and techniques with your shooting companions, teach shooters in a formal setting or club, or make a career of developing future champions, the National Skeet Shooting Association’s Instructor Certification Program offers the path to pursue your goal. 

Courses can be established anywhere that three or more students can be assembled. Please direct any questions about the NSSA Instructor Courses to our Chief Instructor, Ralph Aaron at 334-308-8363 or rpaskeet@yahoo.com.
Level I courses are conducted by Zone Instructors, who are Level III and Masters. They are appointed by the Chief Instructor based upon need. Prerequisites for attendances are:

  • Current NSSA Member and 18 year of age
  • C Class or higher in one gun, currently or previously (with minimum of 300 NSSA
    tournament targets)
    There must be at least three students for the class to occur. The cost is $400.00 USD plus your shooting expenses.
    You will learn teaching techniques, the system for bringing on beginners, and shotgun shooting fundamentals. The Zone Instructors can travel anywhere in their Zone, with the students paying for the instructor’s travel expenses.
    Associate Instructor Level is for those who do not have a “C” class in any gun. The courses will be the same as a Level I course with the same materials and will be taught by a Zone Instructor. The cost is $400.00 USD plus your expenses. Associates will not be listed on the web site. The primary purpose of the Associate Instructor Program is to promote youth shooting in a safe conscientious manner, while providing the sound fundamentals of skeet shooting. Must be 18 years of age. The first year of membership with the NSSA is free under the Complimentary Limited Membership (CLM). Once a “C” class is acquired and the Chief Inst. is informed, a Level I patch and certificate will be sent for $25.00. (Must shoot a minimum of 300 NSSA registered targets, or 5 events to
    establish a “C” classification, no exceptions)
