BHI is worldwide membership organisation dedicated to training people in horology.

Members include experienced professionals developing their skills further, students who are training for qualifications and enthusiasts who enjoy it as a hobby.

There are two distance learning courses: Technician Grade and Combined Intermediate and Final Grade (Clock or Watch Pathway).

Each course contains a series of self-contained lessons and practical exercises working towards passing sample examination papers and test pieces.

Taster Days are organised at Upton Hall the BHI’s headquarters near Newark, where people can discover how timepieces work.

One day courses include a presentation, demonstrations of different technical aspects of timepieces and hands-on practical experience of how they work, are maintained and cleaned.

The courses are run by professional tutors with a wealth of experience in the industry.
