Thread: Confused about becoming an instructor.

  1. #31
    There was no offense intended but there are a lot of hobby instructors out there. Do the forms I suggested and go to business. Teaching can be a lucrative business. Make sure your instructor insurance in order and if you're teaching on a home range get that insured. Your homeowner's insurance will not cover you it.

    Who would you recommend for insurance? Do you need some certain kind of Insurance? Or is it an add on to your homeowners?

    For general NRA training, the NRA insurance is fine. It provides $2 million in aggragate coverage as professional liability insurance for about $325 annualy. If you intend to teach advanced classes you may want to revisit the coverage at a later time.

    Ouch... $325.00 annually. At the rate of inquiries I'm getting to my ads, I'm not sure I will even earn $325.00 a year.

    You should be able to knock that out in a weekend or two. Have patience. your student base will grow through word of mouth. I suggest undercutting your competition's price, providing discounts for groups or return students and contacting all the local sporting goods stores and ranges for work. We provide free training to all employees (and their families) of gun stores who refer students to us. USA Carry members get a 50% discount on training.

    The NRA insurance only will cover you as an instructor. You will need additional insurance on your range,you cancheck but homeowners insurance will not cover you or your home range when you're using it for business. I use Joseph Chiarello & CO for my insurance. Gun Insurance Home, Welcome

    The NRA coverage will allow you to add any range as addiditional insured and will issue a certificate of cov erage for each range. The fee was $25 per range. The NRA coverage also includes, damages to location, published works and/or substance of lectures, including copyright infringement.

    That is if it's an already insured range, not one in your backyard. Chiarello does the same.
    The reality Speedbump is if you're going to teach others than just friends and family you need the insurance.

    I have a question that may seem silly, but since I'm going to have everyone sign a waiver, what do I need Insurance for?

    We all have students sign waivers and some of us even do videotaped waivers but that will not stop a lawsuit. You should talk to an attorney for more details on that. You should check your homeowners policy and'or call your agent about your home range also. You might find that your teaching is not covered.
