As a student of the BHI’s distance learning horological course, you can, of course, study in your own time and take as long as you need to complete the work. You can also choose whether or not you would like to take the associated exams to gain accreditation and MBHI or FBHI status.
If you do wish to sit exams this year, though, make sure you’ve applied by the deadline of 11pm on Friday 17 January.
The EAL/BHI exams are accredited by Ofqual and are renowned throughout the horological industry. Gaining Accredited Member status with the BHI opens a wealth of employment opportunities, as both individuals and businesses will see that you have proven your skills and competence to the BHI’s high standards. There are 20 individual units to study which, depending on which combination you take, could gain you a Diploma in Clock and Watch Servicing (Level 3), Servicing and Repair of Clocks/Watches (Level 4) or Repair, Restoration and Conservation of Clocks/Watches (Level 5). Diplomas at Levels 4 and 5 will gain you BHI accreditation as a Member or Fellow respectively, with the associated postnominals of MBHI or FBHI.
