The EMT thing is the same with our Combat life saving classes unless you can get in the advanced class and actually do everything you learned on a pig and try to save it.

Yeah my buddy is a cls trainer. He would disagree. I told him I just picked up the field kit and he laughed and said he wouldn't let me near him with it if it meant dying. Lol he knows I'm first aid certified and took the emt course.

I would recommend Penn foster but its your decision.
The ashworth course is based off of...
The 3rd edition if I remember correctly.

I chose Ashworth. I chose them because all the info I could get on penn foster appeared to have people dressed as though they were still in the 50's. I would suggest if you are young and serious about this as your future to attend a hands on 2 or 3 year college or gunsmith school. Myself I was 55 years old and have had had considerable experience working with machine shop equipment and am a lifetime maintenance millwright. Ashworth as well as other home study courses cannot teach you the machine shop skills you need to be a gunsmith. You will need to get the machine shop training elsewhere. A certified gunsmith school would be the perfect way to go for a young person who has their mind set on this as a lifetime profession. There are a couple of community colleges in North Carolina that offers a degree in gunsmithing.
