The application period for admission to the 2017-2018 session of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) National Firearms Examiner Academy (NFEA) is open to all qualified candidates.  It is important to note that in addition to personal qualifications, trainees must be assigned to an established firearms section within the Federal, State and local agency laboratory.  Agencies must also have an experienced firearm and toolmark examiner on staff to mentor and continue training upon completion of the NFEA. The NFEA provides training for apprentice/entry level firearm and toolmark examiners from Federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. The Academy curriculum is composed of the fundamentals of firearms & toolmark examinations and serves as a basis for the trainee, under supervision, to develop into a qualified firearm and toolmark examiner. The application deadline for the 2017 - 2018 session of the NFEA is August 18, 2017. It is anticipated that the class will begin in October 2017 however the training schedule is dependent on the receipt of funding and may be adjusted accordingly.
