New Prospective Instructor Students

FYI: The NRA now requires prospective Instructor students to have taken the NRA Basic Class prior to taking the NRA Basic Instructor Class. Proof will be providing the NRA Certificate for the Basic Student Class. No exceptions.

I think it's about time for that too!

For new, inexperienced instructors, I agree. But since the entire student curriculum is presented during the instructor course, there should be a way for an instructor experienced in that discipline to forego the additional time and expense of taking the student class.

Hello? Can you hear me now? Sorry, just testing, this board hasn't had new posts in almost a week. Thought new software was coming on line?

Does this include the online course or the instructor led only?
