Default Armorer course?

I am interested in taking a glock and XD armorer course. I was looking around trying to find some info. I noticed that it said you must be LEO, military, ext to take the course. My question is are there any of these courses a civilian can take?

Become an NRA range officer and they may let you.

Join the NRA. Take the 8+ hour $100ish course and pass. You are then technically the lowest level of firearms instructor which may be enough to qualify you for a glock armorer course.
I'm taking the glock course in May. Signed up 6 months ago. They allowed me because I am a gunsmith and range officer. Basically they just want to know you have formal gun training for safety.

Well I'm already in the NRA. So far so good.

I'm sure you can pass the ro class it is pretty basic. Just long and boring.
