AGI’s Veterans Program

The American Gunsmithing Institute works with the Veterans Administration through their Chapter 31 Program (Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment). Veterans with a service-connected disability rating of 30% or more often qualify for assistance (assuming the Veteran’s allowance has not already been used for other programs).

Cheri Manny, AGI’s Senior Student Advisor, has worked with the Veterans Administration for over 7 years. Together they have helped hundreds of Veterans from all over the United States earn their Professional Gunsmithing Certificate.

If you are a disabled Veteran and would like to explore the possibilities we can offer you in Gunsmithing, please call Cheri at 800-797-0867.

For those Veterans who may not qualify for Chapter 31 assistance, the dream of becoming a Gunsmith can still be supported with partial funding.

A successful gunsmithing operation requires not only gunsmithing skills but also business management skills. Veterans can use Post 911 or GI Bill funds to take business management courses to help them organize their gunsmithing enterprise, and they use their own funds to get the educational and technical gunsmithing training they need through AGI. If you would like more information on our Professional Gunsmithing Courses, please order our free Intro Kit.

Thanks from all the AGI Team for the commitment you made to serve our country. We are in your debt, and would like to have the privilege of helping you develop a career in Gunsmithing.
