The course will cover fault finding, maintenance and repair.

Candidates are asked to bring:

A broken weapon
A working weapon
A small tool kit see attached document for details (this is not mandatory but would be very useful)

The course will cost 5, plus 5 for joining the Guild of Armourers. Joining the Guild is not mandatory but is recommended, and is compulsory if you wish to qualify as a Journeyman Armourer. (This course will form part of the Journeyman Armourer qualification.)

The application form is attached.

What's the other part?There are four modules:

Weapon control

There will hopefully be a Weapon Control course at the England Cup in January, and I am trying to arrange other courses, dates TBC.
