Schedule of NRA Training Courses


ITAR Certification form is required due to the ITAR (International Trafficing in Arms Regulation), where only U.S. Citizens can receive firearms training. Click here to find out more about the ITAR law.

NRA Training Courses are for Chapter members only.

The chapter’s NRA training cadre is looking for members who are law enforcement officers (LEO) or attorneys to assist in giving the classes regarding legal aspects of firearms ownership and use of force in the Personal Protection series of NRA courses – both the “In The Home” (PPITH) and the “Outside The Home” (PPOTH) courses. Assisting with these courses is another way to fulfill the volunteer service hours time requirement and earn the $50 reduction on the following years dues. Our intent is to have an attorney as a guest lecturer for one of the classes and a LEO for the other, so members that take these courses can get the legal class from both perspectives. Anyone interested in assisting the club in this way is encouraged to contact Marty Sprick at – he is building a roster of members qualified to assist in this manner so we have redundancy and no one gets burned out. The following NRA Courses will be offered to IWLA Members, spouses and eligible family members:

Basic Rifle Course - November 2017

PPOTH Course April 2017
