Field Study Partners

At the School of Firearms Technology, it’s our goal to offer the best distance education possible to our students. Now we’re taking that a step further. Through exclusive partnerships across the country, the School of Firearms Technology is offering select students on-site Field Study programs at no cost to the student. Only the most exemplary students will qualify for these hands-on training sessions, which will offer both professional-level instruction and invaluable networking. We hope to offer even more Field Study opportunities in the future as we continue to grow our Partnership network!
