NSCA Scholastic Instructor Certification Is New Option for SCTP Coaches

nscaShotgun coaches have a new option for becoming certified as SCTP coaches with a new program from the National Sporting Clays Association’s Certified Instructor Program. NSCA now offers a Scholastic Instructor category developed to qualify instructors to work with youth and beginning shooters in a safe and recreational manner. SSSF will be accepting the new course for SCTP coach certification.

The course is the same as that offered for NSCA Level I instructors but has fewer prerequisites, such as registered target requirements.

Scholastic Instructor courses will be offered around the country; the first class is scheduled for January 17-18, 2015, at Old Hudson Plantation in Sparta, Georgia. Other classes will be added regularly. NSCA instructor courses can always be found on the NSCA Instructor Certification Class Schedule.

To learn more about the Scholastic Instructor program, see the course criteria on MyNSCA.com.

For information about planning an instructor course in your area, contact NSCA Chief Instructor, Don Currie, at 407-697-6236 or NSCA@doncurrie.com.
