San Antonio, TX. (Ammoland.com)- NSCA Level III instructor Don Currie has been named Chief Instructor of the NSCA Instructor Certification Program. Currie replaces Gary Greenway who is retiring after serving 10 years as the Chief Instructor.
Currie was selected by the NSCA Executive Committee following a nationwide search. In his new role, he will be responsible for administering the NSCA Instructor Certification Program, including developing curriculum and materials and marketing the program.
A well-recognized professional clay target instructor, Currie is an NSCA Level III Certified Instructor, expert gun fitter, a certified NRA Shotgun, Pistol, and Rifle Instructor, and an NRA Range Safety Officer. He is also an Orvis Wingshooting School and Fly Fishing School Instructor. In addition to competing and coaching professionally, Currie regularly offers NSCA Level I Instructor courses and mentors other instructors throughout the country.
Currie’s instructional ventures also extend to writing and video production. He is a columnist for ClayShooting USA, has a highly-rated instructional DVD, and his first book will be published later this year. He writes a weekly column called “Ask the Instructor” for NSSA-NSCA Target Talk, answering reader questions on sporting clays topics.
Currie previously served as president of the Florida Sporting Clays Association, NSCA Florida State Delegate, and Southeast Regional Delegate. As Chief Instructor, he will continue to be based in Florida.
“As we welcome Don Currie as Chief Instructor and look forward to what his talents will bring to the role, we also wish to thank Gary Greenway for his years of service, both to the Instructor Certification Program and to NSCA,” said Michael Hampton, Jr., NSSA-NSCA Executive Director. “During the time Gary was Chief Instructor, he grew the program substantially and helped make the NSCA Instructor Program a very important part of the association.”
