Refuse To Be A Victim

Joining the Refuse To Be A Victim® Instructing team is easy! Teach your community how to better protect themselves, their family, and their friends.

Women and men interested in becoming Refuse To Be A Victim® instructors must attend a one- to two-day Instructor Development Workshop (IDW) or complete the Online Instructor Training course.

Instructor Development Workshops are taught by Regional Counselors and begin with a Refuse To Be A Victim® Seminar. The workshop then concentrates on technical aspects of the program, instructor expectations, certification guidelines, developing speaking techniques and presentation skills, marketing seminars, etc.

After completing an Instructor Development Workshop and receiving the Regional Counselor's endorsement, the required paperwork and fees are submitted to NRA and instructor credentials are issued.

Once certified, instructors are encouraged to schedule seminars in their communities for organizations, community groups, and companies, both proactively and in response to direct requests.
