A School of Experts

SDI faculty bring years of industry-specific experience to the student experience. We understand that it can be difficult to connect with instructors at some online programs, and we work hard to make this process as individualized as possible. That means that our instructors are not only experienced, but they’re also more than well-versed in the SDI curriculum specifically. We are proud of our faculty and staff and aim to offer each of our students an easy way to get the help they need throughout their entire tenure as a member of the SDI family.

It’s something that I definitely am glad I was able to experience. They’re gonna get you ready for things that you wouldn’t think that you would even want to take on or aspects of the industry that you normally wouldn’t even have thought of doing. It’s a good experience. And if you want to be a gunsmith and it’s a field that you want to get into, it’s an invaluable tool that I don’t even think you should cut out.
