The Whittington U Training Program is proud to offer Basic NRA Certified Firearm Training. NRA Classes are specifically oriented towards developing the knowledge, skills
and attitude necessary for owning and using a firearm safely. These courses help build confidence in new and inexperienced firearm owners by instilling the importance of safety, responsibility, and ethics, in responsible firearm ownership.
We are currently offering courses in NRA Basic Pistol, NRA Basic Rifle, NRA Basic Shotgun, and NRA Basic Muzzleloading.
Upon successful completion of the course students will receive NRA certification in that discipline.
Whether you are brand new to firearm ownership and want to learn the basics, or you are an experienced shooter looking to gain NRA certifications to progress to higher level training we have a class to fit your needs.
All Whittington-U courses are taught on 360 degree ranges where dynamic movement, defensive posture and the fundamentals of pistol marksmanship are emphasized.
Shooters can take part in competitive shooting, rifle and pistol silhouette, bullseye disciplines, and even black powder muzzle-loading rifles.
