Bayprofs is a volunteer organization, and is always on the lookout for dedicated instructors in the San Francisco Bay Area. If you feel that becoming a NRA Certified Instructor is something you may be interested in, feel free to contact us with your interest and experiences.
You do not need to be a certified instructor before you are able to assist with one of our classes, however we will not ask you to teach any part of the class until after you complete the certification process. We allow anyone who has sufficient shooting background to audit one of our student classes at no charge to see if teaching with us is right for you.
We offer extreme discounts on a range of instructor level classes to instructors that volunteer with us on a regular basis. Our instructor classes are also available to qualified individuals who do not wish to volunteer at market-rate pricing.
Please reach out to us if you would like to attend an instructor-level class and do not see one scheduled. These classes are generally scheduled on an “as needed” basis.
All NRA instructor level classes require that you can prove that you have taken and passed the student-level class of the same type. You will also need to pass the scored pre-course shooting qualification, and demonstrate the proper knowledge, skills, and attitude during the classroom evaluations in order to be recommended as an instructor.
The NRA instructor level courses do not teach you how to operate firearms, nor do they teach marksmanship. If you choose to volunteer with us then we can work with you prior to the instructor class to get you to the skill level needed for success.
Payment and attendance of an instructor level course is not a guarantee that you will receive an instructor recommendation.
Our current schedule of instructor classes is listed below:
