This shotgun instructors certification course is a program developed by Dave Fiedler, a nationally renown shotgun shooting instructor with over 30 years experience, and sanctioned by the youth shooting sports organization USA Youth Education in Shooting Sports (USAYESS).

If you’re interested in becoming a shotgun instructor with certification, sign up today! This course was designed to provide new instructors with the knowledge and ability to teach the fundamentals, such as stance (foot and body position), proper gun fit, evaluating eye dominance, visually acquiring the target and reading the signs for ’cause and effect’ of lost targets. With the knowledge gained from this course you will be equipped to instruct beginning students of all ages in the recreational shotgun sports.

Together we will enlighten and secure the future of our shooting sports! For more information on this shotgun instructors course contact Dave Fiedler or Vandy Fiedler at (503) 792-3431 or [email protected].


During this course student instructors will be working with student shotgunners while being supervised by head instructor Dave Fiedler.

Student shotgunners who are beginners to intermediate level shooters will gain fundamental skills, techniques and tools while working on the clay target games of Sporting Clays, Skeet and Trap.

This is a great opportunity to gain professional instruction at a fraction of the cost!
