Becoming an Instructor

The University of Idaho 4-H Shooting Sports program has specific training requirements for certification. Potential archery, handgun/pistol, hunting, muzzleloader, rifle and/or shotgun instructors must be certified for each discipline they wish to teach. Certified instructors must oversee any live-fire ranges and classes in which firearms/archery equipment are handled.
