Firearm Retailer Training

WA State Firearm Retailer/Safety Instructors

The National Rifle Association, the Second Amendment Foundation and Forefront Suicide Prevention are among collaborators in the Safer Homes Coalition that helped to develop the Safer Homes training. Firearms retailers, state agencies, law enforcement, mental health providers, health care providers and suicide prevention advocates also contributed to its development.

Firearm safety is a proud tradition in Washington and across the United States. For many years, the American firearms-using public has embraced safe storage in order to avoid the tragedy of a young child dying or hurting another in an accidental shooting. Today, the largest risk by far of firearm death is to boys and men who end their lives by suicide.

Sign up for the “Firearms Safety, Suicide Awareness & You” training for free today. 

Free to Washington state firearm retailers and instructors, the skills learned in this training will help retailers and instructors – as well as anyone within the firearms community – to take actions that will help to save lives.

If you are a firearm retailer from another state, you may take the training for a modest fee. Please contact the Safer Homes Coalition ( to request an access for the training.

After taking this training, participants will be able to order or download (free) Safer Homes Materials to help them in educating their customers about safe storage to counter today’s risk.
