NSCA Level I Certification

The Washington Sporting Clays Association is pleased to support a NSCA Level I Instructor certification training.

The course is run over three days, normally Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and involves both classroom discussions and actual teaching of new and novice shooters. Successful candidates will be able to advertise their credentials as a NSCA Instructor and will be listed on the NSCA website. Certified instructors are a huge asset to any sporting clays club, as they are advocates of safety for new shooters, helping them learn about this great sport in an enjoyable and entertaining fashion.

The prerequisites for the course are:

  • Be an active member of NSCA
  • Be 18 years or older
  • Have at least two years of shotgun shooting experience
  • Have taken lessons (2 hours) from Level II or equivalent before the course
  • Meet the Shooting Proficiency Requirement by EITHER having earned an NSCA C-Class rating at some point and shot a minimum of 3,000 lifetime registered targets OR by passing a basic Shooting Proficiency Test (SPT) during the course

The course will require a minimum of six students to proceed, and the maximum number of students is capped at eight.
