A great way to turn your hobby, experience or interest into a legitimate business and income!

The Instructor Workshop will guide Instructor Candidates through planning, setting up and teaching, and completing the MCRGO CPL Course from start to finish. We will cover the standards and ethics of MCRGO Instructors, various teaching methods, establishing the flow of the class, making sure the candidate knows, follows, and enforces all firearm safety rules at all times. Candidates will take turns instructing parts of the course under the guidance of the Master Instructor in both the classroom and range environment.
Candidates should already have the fundamentals of pistol marksmanship down very well. No previous experience in training or teaching is required (but certainly is useful!).
