7. Student Responsibilities
7.1 Student Application for Coach Appointment
After attending the Coach School, each participant is responsible to successfully complete the sports
specific take-home test. When completed, the sport specific test is mailed to the NRA National Coach
Trainer for grading along with the application form and fee. In the event that a student’s test score is
unsatisfactory (less than 85%), the test may be retaken (if the test is not administered in class, an
administrative fee of $10.00 is assessed for administrative support). Testing must be satisfactorily
completed within six months of the last day of the school. (Retesting may be accomplished as many times
as required by the candidate within the six month course completion window.) If the candidate does not
pass the test within six months and still wishes to be a coach, the individual must attend another coach
school at their own expense.
7.2 Other Certification Requirements
Coaches desiring to upgrade their Appointed Coach credential must submit copies of current American
Red Cross Standard First Aid (or equivalent) cards, ASEP certification, and an NRA Classification card
(for the desired coaching discipline, e.g., pistol for pistol, high power for high power). There is no
additional fee to upgrade credentials as long as the current coach credential has not expired.
Application processing fee is $30.00 per coaching discipline. The credential is valid for three years after
date of issue. After completing all certification requirements, the coach candidate must complete the
Application/Renewal for Coach Appointment/Certification form, enclose all other required materials, and
send the completed package with the processing fees to:
National Rifle Association of America
National Coach Trainer
11250 Waples Mill Road
Fairfax, VA 22030
7.4 Processing Applications
Once received by the NRA, the application takes approximately six to eight weeks to process. Applicants will
receive a coaching credential card or are notified of incomplete applications.
NOTE: The applicant is responsible to ensure that the NRA has received all pertinent certification
materials. The NRA is not responsible for application information lost in the mail. Applicants should
make a copy of the Application/Renewal application and all attachments. Applicant may be requested to
resubmit the application in the event it is lost in the mail.
