NLETC reserves the right to limit the number of attendees from any one agency. This is to provide equitable training throughout the state.

Students are responsible for lodging ($25.00 per night double occupancy) and meals.

Course Description:  This course is designed to recertify State of Nebraska Firearms Instructors. and provide updated information.

Course Content:  Information regarding the recertification course will be emailed to the students. Make sure to read all the attachments that are sent with the acceptance letters. Students will shoot their weapon system as you deploy it on duty, meaning, if you have a red dot mounted on the handgun, you may shoot the course with that optic on the weapon.

For this course, you will receive the power point (as a PDF handout) in the acceptance letter email. Study the material as there will be minimal class power point instruction prior to the written test. Be prepared to take the written exam. Develop a shooting drill of your choice and be prepared to present it and run the firing line while the group shoots your course of fire.

It is highly encouraged that you practice the qualification course prior to arriving. The qualification course is listed on the NLETC website.

Requirements for Certification:  Students must achieve a 90% score on the Nebraska Firearms Instructor Recertification Pre-Qualification course to get into the class. If you do not pass the pre-qualification, you will not be allowed to continue with the class. 

Students must pass the instructor qualification course of fire with a score of 90% inside of the modified hit zone. You will have 3 attempts to successfully pass the instructor qualification. Students must all pass the written examination with a score of 80%.

If you are unable to successfully complete any part of the instructor recertification, you will be allowed to sign up for another posted recertification course in the same calendar year to maintain your instructor certification. The only exception to this would be, if you have signed up for the LAST posted recertification course of the calendar year. If you have signed up and fail to successfully complete the last posted recertification course of the calendar year, you will be required to complete the entire instructor course over to receive your instructor certification. The number of recertification courses in a calendar year will only be dictated by the number of courses posted. Priority will be given to those that have not attended a recertification yet.

If you have questions about the course, equipment, or protocols please contact Wyatt Hoagland at or 308-218-6676.
