    For the first time in my life, I am strongly considering becoming a certified firearm instructor to provide my services for free to school teachers/educators.

    Not that it's likely to ever fly in Oregon, but I've thought about this as well. What's the first step in becoming a certified instructor? Just taking the NRA instructor class?

    This was an emotional, spur of the moment remark. But, yes, I know the stuff. I've taught several people (friends and family), including my wife, a total work-in-progress deal, reformed anti-gunner, who also is works in the public education system. So, in a sense, I am "doing it".

    I have received some training from OFA and have added experience in top of it. A "certification" adds a level of "legitimacy" that may entice people who could be on the fence about "free" training. Plus, with the right certification, it could be used towards an OR CHL.

    I could have said NRA but left it open ended because there must be other certifying entities I do not know of. Up until now, I've never considered it, so I have a lot of homework to do.

    Taking an NRA instructor class would be a good first step. As an NRA instructor, you can provide proof of training OR will accept for obtaining CHL.
