A gunsmithing certificate will teach you the art and craft of building and repairing firearms. Students study topics like the history of firearms, rifle design and function, shotgun design and function, metal finishing, measurement and instrumentation, pistol and revolver design, and accessory installation. Gunsmithing certificates are usually available at the apprentice, journeyman, and professional level. Online programs require students to come to campus for lab work, where students learn how to use shop tools. Students with little gun experience can use the certificate to begin a formal apprenticeship with a master gunsmith. Graduates with adequate experience can open up their own gun shop, or they can pursue employment at firearms repair shops and sporting goods stores.
