Note: Since this is a class taught by an NRA Instructor, it should also meet the requirements of the new Iowa permit to carry law as the required training to apply for the Iowa Permit after 1-1-2011. With the new law designating NRA Instructor status as an entry into teaching Iowa CCW classes, there may be some interest in attaining certification. I have had many calls and e-mails requesting information and locations. Here is the current information: * All classes are for the NRA Pistol Instructor Certification. All begin at 9am on the first day, typically a Saturday, of the 2 day workshop. A typical schedule is: * Sat: 9am-4pm, NRA BIT (Basic Instructor Training), a 6 hour module required for all new instructor candidates; 4:30pm-8pm, start the 11 hour Pistol module * Sun: 9am-conclude, finish the pistol module I have set up 5 locations.
