Are any of you familiar with the AWI Laurie Penmen clockmaking correspondence course? I would be interested in any opinions. I don't know a lot about clocks, but would like to learn.

Scott, You proabably know the following:

The AWI Home Study Course in Clock Repair package contains all the material and information necessary to successfully learn the fundamentals of clock repair, including The Clock Repairer’s Handbook by Laurie Penman and a one-year subscription to Steven G. Conover’s monthly publication, Clockmaker’s Newsletter. Course participants will be invited to attend a 2-day meeting at AWI to confer with Mr. Penman and meet other students.
AWI Members - $750
Non-members - $825
Contact Nancy Wellmann, AWI Education Coordinator E-mail: nwellmann@awi-net.org Phone Toll Free 1-866-367-2924 ext. 303 or (513) 367-9800


I have not seen the course materials, but have seen other AWI instructional publications and they are very good. The materials produced by Steven Conover are also very good, and I have heard nothing but good things about them.

Hope this helps a bit.


Tom

I received the box today. In it is a Hermle movement and the first two lessons with "The Clock Repairer's Handbook." I'll start working on this before the weekend is up.
