Default Gunsmithing courses in Louisiana?

I've noticed there are a few people on here from Louisiana. Has anyone heard of gunsmithing courses that happen in the state? I believe Delgado used to have them, but I looked yesterday at their website and didn't find anything.

Are there quality online gunsmithing courses that any of you guys would recommend? I have come across a few, but I'd like to hear another more experienced perspective.

I found some old threads regarding "online courses" so unless anyone wants to comment on that I think I got it covered for right now. I still was not able to find anything about actual hands-on courses in Louisiana, so any input in that regard would be appreciated.

Are you aware that Clark Custom Guns is in Monroe?
The best way to learn is hands on in-residence. Some may even apprentice at a smith shop in their spare time. (A gunsmith who has a lot of work may appreciate a helping hand.)

If Clark Custom wasn't six hours away I'd be driving there right now. I will have to check them out on a weekend.

An apprenticeship with someone who has in-depth technical knowledge would be ideal. The issue is that all the businesses near me have a "the gunsmith only comes in on Monday" sort of situation. The smithing aspect is generally peripheral to other aspects of firearms business and some of the work I've been handed over as a "finished product" was somewhat embarrassing. So that is what prompted me into taking the idea more seriously. I will dig around more and see what I come up with... there has got to be someone... it's the South.

As of right now I'm looking into machining courses at a college here: lathe, mill, CNC. I figure that with a School of Hard Knocks curriculum might prove most useful for now instead of waiting around for a perfect situation.

Clark Customs is in Princeton, LA. I know I stay right down the road in Minden.
