Responsible Firearm Ownership with New England Firearms Academy

If you've been thinking about learning more about firearms or considering becoming a gun owner, you might have some questions and concerns. Here at the New England Firearms Academy (NEFA), we understand that and we're here to help. Founded in 2013, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive and quality firearms instruction, with a focus on Firearms Certification for Licensing and Live Fire Training​​.

Begin your journey to responsible firearm ownership

Our Certified Massachusetts Basic Firearm Safety Class is a great starting point for anyone interested in firearms. Whether you're considering obtaining a firearm license or just want to gain a better understanding of firearm safety, this course is for you. We cover the basics like safety rules and procedures, loading and unloading firearms, and even ammunition knowledge. But it's not all about handling the firearm - we also ensure you're familiar with Massachusetts Firearms Laws. We believe that responsible gun ownership begins with understanding the law​.

Broaden your horizons and opportunities

If you're someone who travels a lot, you might be interested in our Utah Concealed Carry Certification. This certification enables you to legally carry a concealed handgun in over 32 states! But it's not just about the permit - we want to ensure you're safe and responsible wherever you go. The course includes an overview of basic firearm safety rules, safe loading and unloading of various firearms, as well as a deep dive into Utah and Federal Firearm Laws. Plus, we guide you through the entire application process, right in the classroom​.

Build confidence through practice

For those who want to take their knowledge a step further, we offer Live Fire Training. This class is designed for individuals who have completed a Basic Firearms Safety Class with NEFA and now wish to learn the fundamentals of defensive shooting. We cover everything from proper grip and stance to sight alignment, trigger control, and even multiple target engagement. And if you're unsure about what equipment works best for you, we've got you covered with a review and evaluation of various options​.

Learn from dedicated instructors

What truly sets NEFA apart is our team of devoted instructors. They are committed to their continuous learning process, attending yearly Instructor Development training classes all over the country. This ensures that they bring the most current and comprehensive knowledge back to their students. Our instructors maintain certifications from notable organizations, including the National Rifle Association, Massachusetts State Police, and Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification.

We understand that the journey to responsible firearm ownership might feel daunting. But with the right guidance and support, it can be a rewarding and educational experience. At New England Firearms Academy, we're committed to providing a safe, welcoming environment for everyone, regardless of their prior knowledge or experience with firearms. So, whether you're just curious, considering gun ownership, or wanting to expand your knowledge, we're here to support you on your journey.
