Instructor Certification Courses

Usual turnaround time for those attendees to be able to see their USA Archery Level 2 Instructor Certification in their USA Archery membership portal is about 2 – 4 weeks. (assuming that the attendee has passed both exams, has purchased their USA Archery membership, completed/passed the background check, completed Safe Sport and finished any/all other requirements as set by USA Archery).

Any rates shown in the table below do not include: the required USA Archery (USAA) or National Field Archery Association (NFAA) membership required OR the processing fee for the required Background Check. Safe Sport completion through USA Archery portal is also required though is not normally an additional cost. All additional requirements must be completed by the registrant separately before USA Archery will release their certification if/when they pass all required exams after completion of the certification program.

Attendees are responsible for paying for their own USA Archery membership ($60) or NFAA membership ($75) and their USA Background Check ($25) separately and directly through USA Archery. Attendees must also complete the SafeSport Training and obtain a Range Pass (if they intend to work at a range and are only acquiring a Level 1 certification). These items are required by USA Archery before they will release the Instructor Certification for a Level 2 Instructor after the attendee has passed both the Level 1 and Level 2 exams. Delays in receipt of certification will occur if any of the above have not been completed.
