    About Colorado School of Trades

    Founded in 1947, the Colorado School of Trades (CST) has been training Gunsmiths continually since its inception. The school enjoys a worldwide reputation built on a nearly 70 year history and a long list of successful graduates recognized by top Gunsmith employers everywhere. The Colorado School of Trades has applied a system based upon hands-on, project oriented training geared to train individuals who wish to become artisan craftsmen. The school prides itself on a personal approach that allows the motivated student to enter the profession of Gunsmithing as an entry level general Gunsmith. The Colorado School of Trades has structured the curriculum to teach students the basics, allowing the exceptional student to challenge his or her skill set, progressing farther, and learning more complex skills. Our students learn Gunsmithing through the repair of customers' firearms in the largest Gunsmithing shop in the United States. Our students perform 4,000 to 5,000 firearm repair operations every year. If you have a passion for firearms, are a person who learns better by a "hands on approach", and enjoys the challenge of solving problems; don't delay! Prepare for a bright future with satisfaction, security, and freedom. Join the ranks of professionals performing an artisan craft older than America itself.
