SDI's 32 semester-credit hour certificate program in Gunsmithing and 60 credit hour Associate of Science in Firearms Technology degree program can work hand-in-hand, and are the most complete training programs of their kind. SDI strives to give you the best quantity and quality of professional Gunsmithing information and tools. These programs are perfect for students interested in a career in the firearms industry or for those who are interested in owning their own gunsmithing business. Our programs are delivered via distance learning, which allows our students to maintain full time jobs, families, military service and more while working towards their degree or certificate.
Additionally, we offer a comprehensive, non-credit Gunsmithing Certificate, perfect for the hobbyist or student interested in a supplemental gunsmithing trade. This program takes the major topics of our Advanced Gunsmithing Certificate, offered in a quick, manageable and affordable format. Learn techniques you'll use on your own firearms or develop your hobby into a side business, all at your own pace.
Our unique Ballistics and Reloading Certificate offers an advanced look into ballistics, reloading, swaging, casting and more. In addition to content developed through a partnership between SDI and industry leader Gun Digest, the Ballistics & Reloading program includes a Hornady Lock n Load Press.
Plus, SDI continues to place its students at the forefront of technology by offering a unique AR-15 Advanced Armorer Course and AR-10 Advanced Armorer Course--both of which include a full AR build as part of the extensive lessons and training within each course's curriculum.
