Northern Firearms Training Academy is a Full Service
Firearms Training School. We are Fully Licensed, Bonded
and Insured.

All of our Training Staff is Nationally Certified through
the NRA to instruct in required disciplines of training.

Our Chief Instructor, NRA Certified Training Counselor
James English is Certified in all of the above disciplines
and is also a Certified Chief Range Safety officer.

Mr English has over 40 years of firearms experience
including but not limited to:  

United State Marine Corps Training, Law Enforcement
Firearms Training, Armed Security and 40 years of
Hunting experience.

He has been instructing certified NRA classes since 2001
and has had well over 10,500 students in this short time.  

Owning, Using and Carrying a Firearm is something that
should be taken
very seriously! Your life, the life of your
loved ones or the life of a innocent person depends on
your Knowledge, Skills and Attitude. This Knowledge,
Skills and Attitude begins with your training. More than
just marksmanship training, knowing the legalities of
ownership, usage and transportation are just as
important. Your freedom and your bank account depend
on you knowing all aspects of firearm law.

Mr English knows that learning how to shoot is only a
small part of firearms ownership and has shown this in
his training of students over the time he has been
teaching. The NRA has also noticed the uncompromised  
level of expertise he has shown his students and has
awarded him with the Certification of NRA Training
Counselor. This is a very small group of highly trained
individuals within the NRA Firearms Training field that is
authorized to Train and certify NRA Certified Firearms
Instructors (he teaches experienced shooters how to
teach others to shoot). If the NRA trusts him to train their
instructors, shouldn't you trusts him to teach you as a
firearms student or instructor candidate?   

All of us at Northern Firearms Training Academy know
your time is important, and we know that you can find an
instructor out there that will bend the rules and give you
the certificate you want with little or no training on your
part. Ya they are out there, we know it, the NRA knows it,
but is your life, your freedom and your money really
worth going against the system and taking the easy way
out? We believe that doing it the proper,
legal way will
benefit you many times over in the long run. Again it's
your life, your freedom, and your money on the line, not
the life, freedom or money of the rogue instructor.  

Taking any of our training courses, you can be assured
that you will receive the best possible training you can
get in Northern Michigan. Yes you will have to sit
through the entire course but you will learn everything
you need to know to protect the lives and freedom of
yourself and your loved ones.

So, Whether you’re a new or prospective gun owner or
hunter in search of training, whatever your age or level
of expertise, whatever type of firearm you’re interested
in, Northern Firearms Training Academy is here to help
