Alert Security Training School offers NRA Instructor Training to veterans who have GI Bill® Educational Benefits to pay for their training to become NRA Instructors. This 26-week term will train you to be an NRA Certified Instructor in all 13 NRA disciplines.

Registration is ongoing for upcoming terms. Bring your certificate of eligibility for GI Bill® benefits or email it to us if registering online.

The earlier you register, the sooner the Veterans Administration (VA) will process your $1260 monthly living expense and $500 books and materials stipends. We know that the paperwork to receive your GI Bill® benefits can be confusing. Let us help you navigate the system and make sure it is all done correctly. Call us toll free at 844-244-0294 for more assistance.

Veterans may apply for their Certificates of Eligibility at The school name and address of record are:

Alert Security Training School
130 North Front Street, Suite 2
Kingston, NY 12401

Your GI Bill® Certificate of Eligibility (COE) is all you need to register. If you cannot get that by the time registration closes for a given term, we can do a provisional registration. Stipends will not start being paid by the VA until the COE is received by us. Interested veterans should begin applying for their Certificates of Eligibility as soon as possible.

The class load is 18 hours per week. Students currently have the option of attending Saturdays and Sundays. Classes are scheduled to run from 8am-5pm each day, but adjustments may occur occasionally due to weather, range availability, or other factors. An Instructor Candidate may be able to split sections with prior approval. We make every attempt to ensure that Instructor Candidates can manage their family and job obligations while enrolled in our courses. Your success is our success.
