We are a worldwide membership organisation dedicated to training people in horology.
Our members include experienced professionals developing their skills further, students who are training for qualifications and enthusiasts who enjoy it as a hobby. Thousands of people make, repair, conserve, restore, collect and sell clocks and watches, while millions more have an interest in the art and science of horology. Since 1858, the British Horological Institute has been training people in this craft, both professionals and enthusiasts, from beginners to masters.
As one of the most prominent providers of horological education and training, we offer both short courses and longer ones for distance learning, the latter of which is geared towards professional qualification and accreditation (should you choose to take the exams).
We run introductory courses, professional development for working horologists, and structured learning designed to sustain the craft now and in the future.
