I too the NRA Basic Instructor and Basic Pistol Instructor certification course from Dwayne in January of 2010. He runs a good instructor course and he was there to answer any questions I have about setting up my business in the months following my certification.
Since then we have had occasion from time to time to discuss training issues and his counsel is sound. I have recommended Dwayne to several of my students who expressed an interest in becoming NRA instructors and to several others who are not my students.
I believe that if you go to Dwayne for instruction that you will be happy with your experience. I know I have been.
The Instructor's course was taught in a very friendly and professional manner. Mr. Chaney teaches in a way that makes you feel comfortable to ask questions and receive feedback. If you are considering becoming an instructor you need to take this instructor course!
Excellent instruction! Mr. Chaney provided all material in professional, friendly and engaging environment. A lot of information to absorb in a short time, but Mr. Chaney is able to keep you engaged and learning the entire time. I would definitely recommend Mr. Chaney for any course he is teaching.
I feel that the instructor was very knowledgeable in the subject matter. The course material was laid out in an organized manner that helped me to follow the topic easily. The instructor also conveyed the material in a manner that was on my level and made sure that everyone thoroughly understood the subject matter before moving onto the next point. Though it was a long class, the use of TPI kept us focus and alert.
Great class, very well planed, and executed, Mr. Chaney did an excellent job teaching the class, very informing and exciding, I would recommend this class and highly recommend Mr. Chaney as the instructor.
Course was very well organized and the NRA Counselor (Dwayne Chaney) captured my attention from the first moment I walked through the door and maintained an active stance for the entire course. The day was so busy that it went by before I realized it. The training was intense but the atmosphere was relaxed and conducive to a learning environment. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and the course content and look forward to repeating the experience on future courses.
Dwayne is one squared away instructor! His class was thorough and interesting from the get go. I highly recommend him as a NRA Training counselor.
The class was a bit on the lengthy side, but I feel that it was necessary in order to ocver the wealth of information requred for being an NRA instructor. The instructor's constant enthusiasm helped me ot stay focused on the subject matter on hand. Dispite the constant level of energy that the instructor had, the instructor maintained top notch level of professionalism and awareness of his actions, words, and classroom environment. The instructor's ability to flow with the movement of the class seemed to help the general fluidity of the class movment.
With over 1000 hours of CE credits in my primary profession, Dwayne is one of the best instructors that I have ever encountered. He is very effective at keeping the attention of students, and involving ALL participants in the class. Outstainding instructor.
Mr. Chaney is a very good instructor. He has somehow mananged to retain my attention for the last 20 hours. I don't know how he does it, but he is amazing.
I think it was a great course full of knowledge and valuable information which gives me the confidence to go out a teach a quality course to the general public.
Greatly enjoyed the course. Learned a great deal involving instruction and coaching for beginner shooters. Expanded my own abilities and knowledge vastly.
Dwayne, thank you for a great learning experience! Your method of engaging all students to continue thinking and learn to be aware of our surroundings at all times worked very well. And you made sure every student learned every phase you taught! Ron and Cooper (Kujo)
I can't put into word how beneficial and awesome our class time was in the two day weekend. I learned a lot from Dwayne, who is a fantastic teacher, and have since been able to help others with their basic gun safety. Dwayne engaged us all and taught me so much over the two days. If anyone is looking to take an instructors class I recommend taking it with someone who cares about your learning experience and you as a person. Take this class from Always-on-Point and you will not be disappointed!
I took the Pistol Instructor's course a few weeks back and I'm glad I did it! Dwayne is a great instructor and has a very friendly and approachable demeanor and a great teaching style. I expected the class to be hours and hours of Power Point slides, reading, etc., but it was anything but. The class was very interactive with all of us participating in the conversation. It was a LONG two days, but it was absolutely worth it! I met several great guys, had a lot of laughs, and walked away with my NRA cerification! I am hoping to take the NRA Rifle Instructor's course with Dwayne in the future as well.
Dwayne is an awesome instructor. He is very passionate and you know he has a deep desire to insure you have reached your maximum potential. I stayed engaged and he keeps the class flowing and you are never bored. I learned more than I anticipated and will continue to pursue additional training from him.
A world of thanks!!!!
I am currently in the Pistol Instructor's course with Dwayne Chaney and I am really enjoying this course. It is inspiring me to become interested in Continuing Education as Trainer. Dwayne is very inspiring as a Teacher.
I took the basic instructor course. Dwayne is a great instructor . he made the realy long course seem short . He is very out going . I have had a wonderful time and have learned a lot. I'm looking forward to taking more classes from Dwayne in the near future
I just completed the NRA Instructor course, given by Dwayne Chaney. I was very pleased with the presentation! I have taken various courses, both military and civilian, so I have seen different methods of teaching. Dwayne is by far the best instructor I have encountered! Dwayne is very engaging and extremely knowledgeable. His teaching methods keep the student interested and eager to progress. I expect I will incorporate some of his techniques into my presentations. Thank you, Dwayne! I look forward to taking my next discipline training through Always-On-Point.
Great Class Mr. Chaney ! Your class made me realize several things I could improve on when giving Firearms training. Not only for me but my students as well . Thanks again for everything.
THE CLASS WAS AWESOME!!!!
Dwayne is as an exceptional instructor. He is as good as I've experienced in 10 years of as an active duty Army Scout. I have attended multiple schools and training from long range marksman to U.S. Army Ranger School and he was able to keep my attention and help me to retain the information better than anyone before. I am already looking for the next course I can get fro Always on Point.
After being in law enforcement for over 35 years, I would have to say is the best Instructor I have ever had. I have taken many classes over the years and have been tired at times and have had a hard time staying awake. But Dwayne has kept my attention in his techniques of teaching. I would highly recommend Dwayne to anyone who is interested in the N.R.A. classes. Very personable man. Can not say enough good things about him.
Just completed a great Instructor Training class. It was a very long and challenging two days of intensive training but well worth the time and effort. Without a doubt Dwayne is one of, if not the best, instructor I've ever experienced. Well done, Gunny. Semper Fi.
I have very much enjoyed this training provided by Dwayne at Always-on-point.com. He is very professional and is a very good teacher. Any training you need I highly encourage you to come and partake of the vast knowledge at Always-On- Point!
Instructor Dwayne Chaney was Excellent in all aspects of this course. He displayed outstanding professionalism, courtesy, respect for all. He demonstrated great knowledge in the information delivered. His teaching ability and overall performance is one all should emulate.
Basic Instructor Course was great. I have taken numerous Law Enforcement and Military classes throughout my 22 years in the business and I can honestly say that Dwayne was one of the best instructors I have ever had. His energy keeps the class "On Point."
The NRA Basic Pistol Instructor Course given by Dewayne Chaney and "TEAM" was absolutely wonderful and an awesome experience. Dewayne kept it exciting and always kept us smiling, allowing us to become informed AND have loads of fun! The info is priceless will be taken out and shared correctly and hopefully in the same manner as it was delivered... FUN! Having information and knowledge on a subject are great things, but using the knowledge given and being able to deliver it in such a fun and positive manner, impacts the one learning much greater. Thank you for a wonderful "learning to teach CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY" class. I know I can speak for us all in this class and say YOU ARE AWESOME!!! Be Blessed!!!

I checked into several other courses before signing up for this one. I am very glad that this is the one I chose. Dwayne is an excellent instructor - top notch. I would highly recommend Always On Point for all your firearm training needs.
I have enjoyed being in Dwayne Chaney's NRA instructor class. He is an excellent instructor and I am glad I had the opportunity to learn from him. He takes his time to ensure that his students have grasped the concepts while in the meantime keeping the class and students engaged. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for any kind of training. And I hope that this is not the last time I get to train and learn from him.
Mr. Chaney's NRA Pistol Instructor course was absolutely the best class I have ever participated in. They are so many layers to his instruction and he makes it seem effortless. He is well prepared and patient. He creates a learning environment that is comfortable to learn in. He doesn't allow you to give up on yourself if you feel that you cannot perform a specific task. If you need a prime example of great instructing, this is the instructor you need. I cannot express it enough. I am grateful for his lessons, motivation, and pure sincerity in teaching others. I look forward to seeing him again!
The NRA training with Instructor Dwayne F. Caney has been an wonderful experience. The knowledge he has is far above what I expected and has taken me to another level. I recommend this training for anyone who is interested in teaching others firearms training. Instructor Chaney is the Best - Do it right the first time!!!!
Always-On-Point, LLC is a great learning environment. I have a renewed respect for firearms training. It has been a long time since I have had training that exceeded the price of the class. I want to say thank you to Always-On-Point LLC for doing all that they do and keep doing the wonderful job.
I recently attended the NRA Instructor's Course (Pistol) which was taught by Mr. Dwayne Chaney. Mr. Chaney is an amazing instructor. He does an outstanding job at keeping all of the students engaged throughout the training process. If you're looking for any NRA related training, do yourself a favor and reach out to him. You will not be disappointed!!
I just attended the NRA Pistol Instructor Course with Dwayne Chaney who provided one of the most detailed and interesting courses I've attended in my 37 years in law enforcement and corporate security. Dwayne provided in depth instructional knowledge of the course subject, with enthusiasm and student interaction. Would recommend attending any course taught by Dwayne Chaney. Job well done.
This course has truly been an eye opener. Dwayne Chaney is by far the best firearms instructor I have ever had. He is very professional and takes the time to explain everything you need to know. You will leave his class with a new understanding of instructing. Great job!!
Ill be Back!!
Completing the Basic Pistol Instructor course with Dwayne has been one of the best learning experiences I have had. The information and practical experience has been outstanding. I look forward to returning to Always-on-Point, L.L.C. for more instruction!
This is one of the most professional, comprehensive and useful trainings I have attended in my 30+ years experience of owning, instructing in the use of, and using firearms. Mr. Dewayne Chaney is a consummate professional as indicated by his HIGH level of Instruction and professionalism demonstrated during my training. This TRAINER knows his craft is a master, and it is a professional honor and privilege to have participated in this training. I learned a lot; increased my knowledge base; and am NOW better prepared to become a more useful trainer who can provide a higher level of service to my students because of Mr. Chaney and this training skills. CUDOS NRA and thank you MR. Chaney. I'll be back.....
Very professional. Good motivator. I took away a lot from Mr. Chaney. Highly recommended.
Helped me realize the different styles of teaching a class. This was a very engaging and informative class. Going over the budgets was a huge help as to fully preparing for instructing your own classes.
I would recommend Mr. Chaney for anyone looking for a professional instructor to learn the MRA Basic Pistol Instructor Course. MR. Chaney's amalgamation of military and NRA Counseling/teaching experience creates a perfect environment conducive for learning the NRA's firearms safety standards. You will remain attentive and engaged throughout your learning experience. As a result of attending his class, I now feel truly confident I can become a great facilitator in presenting/teaching the NRA Basic Pistol Course.
his has been the best class that I have ever taken. Dwayne is very professional and, knows how to keep everyone engaged. From the moment that I arrived, I was treated like family and made to feel welcome. At no point have I felt left out or, overwhelmed. The instructors know how to make everyone feel involved. This class was definitely worth the investment!
We have done it and still doing it for our country and now it's time for us to do it for our communities.
