Several California schools provide gunsmithing courses. Send for community-college catalogs, or access them on the web, and see what you can find.
My memory (faulty at my age) says that at least two California State colleges in Northern California have gunsmithing courses (Trinity and Humboldt, I think).
The Brownells website provides leads to gunsmithing schools, too, but not necessarily in California.
Failing that, there are community college and state college programs that will teach you machine-shop practice. It's not specifically gunsmithing, but it's what you need.
After finishing gunsmithing school, apprentice yourself to a gunsmith and learn the tricks of the trade. It would be worth your while to be willing to move to another town, in order to find such a position. It would also be worthwhile to work for no pay while you are apprenticing, just for the learning experience.
Both the school from which you graduate and Brownells can help you there, too.
I live in a very small "town." We have one gunsmith. He's a very recent graduate of the program at Colorado School of Trades (or Mines—I disremember). He's very young, and he still has to work in local restaurants in the summer, in order to live. But his work is pretty good and, as he improves and gathers clients, he will be self-supporting soon.
(It's not a high-pay job. My father used to say, "Just as the shoemaker's children never go shod, the gunsmith's kids can never afford to buy a gun.")
