MCRGO Instructor Certification Workshop

People become MCRGO CPL Instructors for a variety of reasons. Assisting others in obtaining their concealed pistol license is perhaps the most important thing you can do to defend self-defense rights in our state. About 80% of MCRGO instructors transition from a national agency. MCRGO’s instructor program is developed by instructors and is designed to make teaching students as simple as possible. Program administrators are easily accessible to instructors with fast, personal replies to questions and suggestions. MCRGO’s program is Michigan specific and is focused on carrying outside the home.
There is no cost to apply to become a MCRGO instructor. The fee to register for an instructor workshop is $400. A $100 deposit is required. Certification is valid for two years. Online renewal after two years is $25.
Before a MCRGO instructor candidate may attend the instructor workshop, they must first apply to MCRGO, become an approved instructor candidate. Only approved instructor candidates may register for the workshop. Registration should occur no later than one week prior to the workshop. Instructor candidates who are not current NRA PPIH instructors, current USCCA instructors, have other 425J qualifying training approved by MCRGO Operations Committee, or who do not hold State Bar or MCOLES credentials, first need to take a MCRGO CPL course from any MCRGO instructor and provide proof of certification to the MCRGO Executive Director before registering for an instructor workshop (that may occur following application). Instructor candidates taking a combined 3-day MCRGO CPL course and instructor workshop do not need to provide proof of certification in advance.
Candidates need to bring a carry firearm with 100 rounds of ammunition.
MCRGO’s CPL Program is managed digitally. MCRGO instructors are expected to have a basic understanding of computers including an e-mail address, the ability to download and display a PowerPoint presentation and video, and acceptance of an online payment system. All communication with MCRGO regarding the training program is by e-mail.
