Northeast FirearmsNortheast Firearms Training (NEFT) was first established in 2011. We provide various types of personal safety and specialized firearms training in both group and individual settings.

Originally established to bring law enforcement and specialized training to the civilian sector by certified professional law enforcement firearms and use of force instructors to those who demand excellence at an affordable price. Learn from the professionals the techniques to defend yourself and/or your family against a violent physical confrontation. In today’s world we need to be prepared for anything.

Our courses are designed to give you the knowledge and confidence needed to help prevent you from becoming a crime statistic.

Civilian courses can be attended individually or your group or organization can sponsor a course at your facility. Your organization or Fish Game Club can host any of the civilian courses listed, or a course can be tailored specifically for your group. This can be done as an all-inclusive fee or it can be used as a fund raising event for your organization.

Because of today’s hectic schedules and busy lifestyles, a number of those who work in the private sector are not able to attend a pre-scheduled class. If you fall into this category you may want to consider an individual training session where an NEFT instructor will work one-on-one with you.
