The National Rifle Association is committed to offering the best law enforcement firearms instructor training available. These schools are designed to train and prepare the law enforcement officer to become a firearm instructor. They are not shooting schools and are not designed to teach officers how to shoot. Students who attend our firearm instructor development schools are expected to have a basic knowledge of the law enforcement firearms used and be able to safely and accurately use them.
The NRA stands ready to assist you and your department with all of your firearm instructor needs. Our instructors consist of active and former police officers from around the country who are highly trained and well-respected professionals in the field.
Tuition Increase Announcement
NRA Law Enforcement must make a slight increase in Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor School tuition. Effective January 1, 2020, the tuition fee for all of the NRA Law Enforcement Firearm Instructor Schools will be $685.
We understand that any tuition increase can be difficult on officers and departments. However, our training tuition is still the best value in the industry, and our costs for conducting the schools have increased.
