A Jeweler's Guide to Apprenticeships
BY NANZ AALUND
Suitable for shop owners, students, and instructors alike, this 208-page trade book provides detailed, proven approaches for finding, training, and retaining valuable employees. It includes tests and step-by-step projects (with full-color photos) through which apprentices can best learn about specific tools and skills; safety checkpoints; and interviews with professional jewelers who relate their own inspiring experiences with apprenticeships.
"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. consulting editor
