Instructor Certification Course

Students will be required to present the course slides during the instructor training.  Students are encouraged to study the CCHDF book which will be handed out in the CCHDF course. Students should take notes on the materials and be prepared to present randomly assigned sections of the course to their fellow classmates.

There will be a shooting qualification that students must pass with 80% accuracy including distances out to 45 feet. USCCA targets and a copy of the qualification are available at CY Armory for students to come in and practice before the class date.

At Condition Yellow Academy we are committed to teaching all shooters, from novice to instructor level, to be the best they can be. While enrollment in this course does not guarantee certification, we are committed to working with every student and helping them reach their goals. 

Class size will be limited to 8 students.
