Sorry for the stupid question.

Is it for legal reasons?
The reason I ask is that I have a customer who got his NRA instructor cert. We went to the range one day and I had to teach him a few pointers. Just saying.
The reason that Ray is looking for NRA Certified Instructors is because we teach an NRA curriculum which all NRA Instructors are familiar/have experience with, and they will all teach students the same content, in the same way.

Prior to taking an NRA Instructor course there is a live fire assessment that one must pass (20 shots consecutively in an 8" circle at 45ft), so a student is expected to already know how to shoot, and the purpose of the course is really to teach them the "NRA Way", and how to teach students, as being able to shoot and being able to teach or two totally different things.

I hope that helps clear things up.
