Starting in May 2012 Viking Arms began to run Glock authorised armourer’s courses at their base near Harrogate in Yorkshire.

These courses are now standard throughout the world they have been set, produced and overseen by Glock with the written and practical exams set by the factory in Austria.

All successful students from these courses are entered onto the International Glock Armourers database held in Deutsch – Wagram by Glock in Austria.

In July 2012 Viking Arms were invited to send a representative to the first ever Glock Armourers Course Certification Seminar held in Vienna Austria. Ten individuals from around the world were invited to this special event and at the end of that week the ten selected attendees returned to their companies as the internationally recognised Glock Armourer Trainers.

To date Viking Arms successfully trained or re qualified 172 Glock Armourers at their authorised training centre in Harrogate, these included Police Armourers, Police Firearms Instructors, Civilian gunsmiths and civilian weapon instructors.
