Hey man, welcome to the forum

I don't know anything about online gunsmith school but if you're patient someone who does will come along and comment. In the meantime, have you searched older threads for advice?

Thanks for the greeting.I have seen only for the Penn foster I think it is

My thinking is it would be best to either apprentice under a real gunsmith, or go to a physical vocational school, just for the benefit of hands on experience. Are either of those an option for you?

No not really I work full time and thought of doing it on the side

This has been talked about alot on this forum. You can do a search for " gunsmith school". In a nutshell - any schooling will help you some but hands on is a requirement before working on someone elses guns. Also shop time with machine tools is a huge help. You got a good plan with keeping your day job!

Idk about Penn Foster but there's a program at Sonoran Deserts institute that's online but you actually have projects you have to complete that they send you along with all the basic gunsmith tools.

I've emailed Sonoran Deserts about ten times now with questions about using my GI Bill there with no answer. Starting to think they don't want my money. Anyone have a real contact there besides their customer service email? I'm in the military, have a half dozen kids and go to school full time, so online is really my only option right now.
