I am a relative newbie to the horological world, having arrived no doubt like many others through a growing interest, that evolved as I made my first purchases (Breitling & IWC). I have found my interest expanding to the point where I'm considering starting a second career in watch and clock servicing, and possibly more one day.
I have been looking at the BHI's Distance Learning Course - And would welcome any comments of first-hand experience with this course - does it do what it says on the tin; is it genuinely recognised internationally - by the main brand manufacturers - would this be the best/only way of expanding my knowledge and training, leading to a recognised qualification?
Understandably a vastly daunting subject in which to try to forge a new career - so any/all advice greatly appreciated.
I am UK-based by the way.
many thanks in advance,
