Is the NRA Pistol Certification meet requirements for a safety handgun coarse in TN inorder to obtain a CHP? Thanks
I don't think so, but maybe it is.
(e) The department shall also require an applicant to submit proof of the successful completion of a department approved handgun safety course. Any form created by the department to show proof of the successful completion of a department approved handgun safety course shall not require the applicant to provide the applicant's social security number. Any instructor of a department approved handgun safety course shall not withhold proof of the successful completion of the course solely on the fact the applicant did not disclose the applicant's social security number. The course shall include both classroom hours and firing range hours. An applicant shall not be required to comply with the firing range and classroom hours requirements of this subsection (e) if the applicant submits proof to the department that within five (5) years from the date the application for a handgun carry permit is filed the applicant has:
(1) Been certified by the peace officer standards and training commission;
(2) Successfully completed training at the law enforcement training academy;
(3) Successfully completed the firearms training course required for armed security guard/officer registration, pursuant to § 62-35-118(b); or
(4) Successfully completed all handgun training of not less than four (4) hours as required by any branch of the military.

I was going to try to get certified as an instructer and found that I would need to get a NRA pistol instructer certificate that would have to be submitted to the state to get state certified before I could teach a safety course for the HCP license.
I think you can also get state certified as an instructer if you are certified as suchvia being aLE or Military firearms trainer.
Bottom line, your safety course certificate has to come from a state certified training course or instructer, I think.
You are right. I did some more study as well. I can use my NRA Pistol Instructor papers and submit to the state and become a certified TN Instructor. Seems like a pretty easy step. I am having to jump through hoops to become an Instructor in NC. I got one more class in March to take then I can apply for my NC Instructor status. I live in NC but am currently in Nashville and may be here for maybe six months. So I thought I might get my TN CHP Instructor status here. The office that I would be apply to is here in Nashville so I could go in person. We'll see though. Thanks for every ones input.
