The Gunsmith Academy will be supported by EEF, one of the largest engineering training organisations in the UK.
Any Apprentice joining the Academy will be expected to do an initial 6 month training programme at the EEF training facility in Aston. The training delivered at EEF will cover all basic machinery (Lathes, Milling, Grinding, Bench Drills, Polishers) and more advanced items such as CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines. Only when this training is complete will the Apprentice have the chance to apply the newly gained engineering skills to firearms.
The facilities of EEF are cutting edge and the skills they deliver are to the highest standards. They currently train most of the Jaguar Landrover apprentices and manage the HS2 rail engineering school.
