The application period for admission to the 2020-2021 session of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) National Firearms Examiner Academy (NFEA) has been extended through August 31, 2020 to all qualified candidates.  In addition to personal qualifications, trainees must be assigned to an established firearms section within the State and local agency laboratory.  Agencies must have an experienced firearm and toolmark examiner on staff to guide and prepare their trainee with mandatory assignments and a research project prior to graduation from the program. The trainer will also be required to continue with a formal training program once the trainee completes the NFEA program.

Selections for the 2021 class will be made soon after the deadline date with an anticipated start date in October 2020. Please note the training schedule may be adjusted accordingly based on the receipt of funding and the completion of the current NFEA 2020 class.

Although the training is free, agencies will be responsible for covering round trip travel expenses for their trainee to the academy for Phase II and Phase IV of their training. 

Additional information and the application form can be found at:

Questions can be directed to Sheila Hopkins at 202-648-6061 or Jodi Marsanopoli at 202-648-6116.
