"This readable book will enable you to more easily institute an apprenticeship in your own shop, regardless of your background. It will show you how to plan for an apprenticeship; how to evaluate and choose a candidate who is passionate and motivated; and how to train that person to work both for you and with you. It also includes projects and exercises that teach specific skills, with safety emphasized throughout." — from the introduction by Charles Lewton-Brain
Suitable for shop owners, students, and instructors alike, A Jeweler’s Guide to Apprenticeships provides detailed insights into all aspects of setting up a training program in the shop.
