For professionals and enthusiasts

The BHI distance learning courses (DLCs) will help you acquire new knowledge and skills and can lead to nationally accredited awards and set you on the path to becoming a professional clock or watchmaker.

These constantly updated courses have been tried and tested for more than half a century and have helped guide many students into the profession. But, if horology is simply your hobby or an enjoyable pastime, you can also use the courses to satisfy your own personal curiosity about timepieces.

Two courses

There are two DLCs:
1. Technician Grade; and
2. Combined Intermediate and Final Grade.

A Structured Approach

Each course contains a series of self contained lessons.

Tutor Feedback

To help reduce your costs we offer you the opportunity to purchase these courses either with or without tutor feedback.

Electing to purchase the tutor feedback option allows you to submit both your answers to the end of lesson questions and your practical test pieces for assessment by one of the Institute’s DLC tutors. This option is particularly useful for students who do not have access to a personal mentor.


The price of each course is:

Technician Grade: £599.
Combined Intermediate and Final Grade: £449

To study the DLC you will receive lesson booklets. We have to charge you packaging and postage (p&p). If your address is in the UK we charge £12, if it is in Europe £40, Rest of World £100. Material kits for the practical test pieces are available from www.livesteammodels.co.uk

The cost of tutor feedback for the Technician Grade is £360 for 12 lessons. You can buy tutor feedback for the whole course for this price, or you can pay a registration fee of £40 and after that £30 for each lesson as you progress through the course. Tutor feedback for the Combined Intermediate and Final Grade is £100 (theory only). Completed lessons should be posted to Upton Hall ‘For the attention of the DLC Tutor’ or emailed to maxine@bhi.co.uk.
