L’Ecole des Métiers et Artisans de Haute Horlogerie Taster courses
In the third and final article on the Ecole des Métiers et Artisans de Haute Horlogerie, we look at courses aimed at a wider audience.
Following on from our introduction to the foundation courses for young school leavers and assessments and continuing education programmes for working watchmakers, operators and after-sales technicians, we conclude with an overview of the final type of course offered by the Ecole des Métiers et Artisans de Haute Horlogerie.
These recreational courses are open to employees of the Richemont group and anyone else who is curious about the various different aspects of the watchmaking trades and micromechanics. These introductory sessions take the form of one-day practical workshops (which can also be taken as two half-days) in two parts. The first stage is to build a watchmaking tool from A to Z; this tool is then used in the second stage, which involves dismantling and rebuilding a watch movement. Over the coming months, taster courses for engraving and enamelling will also be introduced.
The Ecole des Métiers et Artisans de Haute Horlogerie also provides practical introductory courses for watchmakers, as well as running general courses on watchmaking organised in partnership with the HH Academy, under the aegis of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie.
