Three accredited online or correspondence schools offering gunsmithing certificates and degrees in 2015 are Penn Foster Career School, Ashworth College, and Sonoran Desert Institute. Both Penn Foster and Ashworth offer diplomas in gunsmithing, while Sonoran Desert offers a diploma and a choice between two certificate programs, according to GunGods.com.
Accreditation of secondary schools can be either programmatic or institutional accreditation, according to the Guide To Online Schools website. The important thing for students to know is whether the institution they choose has accreditation. If the school is not accredited, students may not qualify for financial aid, says Colleges And Degrees. The three schools noted above have all achieved institutional accreditation, notes Gun Gods.
