The New Jersey Firearms Academy teaches three different levels of firearms training in the disciplines of Pistol, Rifle, and Shotgun which includes the basic lessons and instructions on how to properly shoot at a target, handle a firearm, firearm safety and how to take care for a firearm. The New Jersey Firearms Academy also teaches its students marksmanship training which pertains to the accuracy of shooting.
Before enrolment to a class of a person’s choice, all qualified individuals who wish to avail of the training and education on the academy have to go over a registration form that they have to complete which asks about the person’s information, criminal records, state of health, and other necessary data before an applicant is accepted to attend any firearms training course at the New Jersey Firearms Academy. It is federal law that anyone who is convicted of felony or with unstable mental health – such as individuals with severe psychosis or mood disturbances – are prohibited to own or purchase firearms and therefore not qualified for firearms training.
Individuals who have health issues that would hinder them to proper training or handling firearms are advised to not avail of the firearms training. Women who are pregnant are also advised to not partake in the training because of lead exposure.
The instructors in the New Jersey Firearms Academy, with their several years of experience in teaching, handling and expertise in firearms and security-related areas, have the certification and knowledge to teach those involved in the area of law enforcement which might include but not limited to law enforcement students, law enforcement officials and retired law enforcement officers into the betterment of their craft or learning new ones.
Pistol, Rifle and Shotgun Training
The New Jersey Firearms Academy offers Pistol, Rifle and Shotgun training in three different levels which are the beginner, advanced and intermediate levels that is designed for the training level a student has.
For those who are entirely new to firearms training, the beginner course is highly commendable, given that the student has filled out the training application within the website and is of good legal standing and can undergo firearms training. Those who seek more instruction as they further their training must meet qualifications before an individual can be raised to a higher level.
