That changed a few years back, now you can teach classes that qualify for an Ohio CHL as long as the instructors are "certified by a national gun advocacy organization, the executive director of the Ohio peace officer training commission pursuant to section 109.75 or 109.78 of the Revised Code, or a governmental official or entity of another state."
See ORC 2923.125 (B)(3)(b)(ii) https://codes.ohio.gov/ohio-revised-cod ... n-2923.125
That would mean USCCA instructors, and others, now qualify to teach CHL classes in Ohio.
OP, if you choose to go with someone other than NRA or OPATA, it wouldn't hurt to talk to the CHL clerk in your county and surrounding counties to ensure they are aware of the law.
