Congratulations to the graduates of our most recent NRA Home Firearm Safety / Basic Pistol / Massachusetts State Police Certified Instructor course!
Seven students, including five MVGC members, recently completed the three day course to become certified by the NRA to teach both the NRA Home Firearm Safety and NRA Basic Pistol courses. This class was presented in partnership with Gun Owners Action League, with GOAL Director of Training and Education Jon Green personally leading the instruction. By all accounts the course was fun and informative for all. Some of the graduates have plans volunteer their time by joining MVGC's instructor cadre where they will help train new and prospective gun owners on the safety and fundamentals of firearm use and ownership.
Here are quotes from some of the graduates:
"Jon is an outstanding instructor and the two and a half days just flew by! I cannot imagine a better instructor!"
"I signed up for training and certification to help the club with training programs - I walked away with the training and knowledge to not only be a better instructor but a better marksman myself! Top notch instruction and program - one of the best. What a great resource for the club and future students."
"I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the class. Although it was a lot of hours and a lot of information in a short period of time our instructor, Jon Green, from GOAL kept the class interesting and the time seemed to fly by! His expertise and experience in the subject was readily apparent. One of the best training experiences I have had. I look forward to assisting the club in their Basic Pistol classes."
Once again, congrats to the new graduates and thank you to Jon Green and GOAL! Excellent job!
If anyone else is interesting in becoming a certified instructor, please let the club know by reaching out to Dave Joy. We plan to offer additional classes as interest dictates. For more information visit our education page here.
