Founded in 1947, the Colorado School of Trades (CST) has been a place to learn gunsmithing continually since its inception. As one of the nation’s largest gunsmithing schools, our program offers you the opportunity to learn an artisan craft as old as America itself.
Whether you’re interested in jobs in gunsmithing, or just want to learn gunsmithing as a side hobby, consider this: there are over 260 million guns in the United States with less than 12,000 legitimate Gunsmiths available to work on them. That equates to over 21,000 guns per Gunsmith. That shows favorable job security in a marketable career like few others!
The Colorado School of Trades begins a new class the second Monday of each month. The Gunsmith Training Program is 14 months of continuous training. Classes meet Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for 1800 hours. Upon completion, the graduate will receive an Associate of Occupation Studies Degree in Gunsmithing and will be prepared to explore a wide variety of jobs in gunsmithing.
