CRS381 – NRA Chief Range Safety Officer


This is the official, 8-hour NRA Chief Range Safety Officer course leading to the instructor credential to teach the NRA Range Safety Officer course which leads to nationally-recognized “RSO” certification.  CRSOs are sought after by clubs and ranges to train their staff to become RSOs.  Clubs and ranges may receive a discount on their insurance costs when NRA Range Safety Officers are employed and present during live fire sessions.  In addition, BSA and other youth organizations often require the RSO Certification.

This is an instructor course which requires prior completion of the RSO and BIT courses.  It is intended for those with a solid background and experience with different types of firearms and actions.  CRSOs must be 21 years of age or older.

Expedite your NRA Instructor certification!

While NRA membership is NOT required for Instructors, if we have your membership # by the class date, your new instructor certification will be available to you within a few days thereafter. Otherwise it may take the NRA up to a couple of weeks to issue a non-member Instructor # to you.

NRA membership & Instructor records must match!

Your NRA membership record MUST match the data that is entered into the report that we file for the NRA Instructor course(s). This includes your exact name, address, apt/unit #, phone and email, etc.

NRA Instructor/RSO Certification Fees

After class, new NRA Instructors/RSOs pay a nominal fee to the NRA to activate their certification which is $35 for members and $60 for non-members. This covers two years and is renewed for the same amount. Existing Instructors/RSOs pay a one-time fee to add each new rating/certification which is $15 for members and $30 for non-members.
