A Jeweler's Guide to Apprenticeships by Nanz Aalund
"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. It includes tests and projects through which apprentices can best learn about specific tools and skills; safety checkpoints; and interviews with professional jewelers who relate their own successful experiences with apprenticeships.
