Watchmakers of Switzerland Training & Education Program
Founded in 1966 by Ebauches SA and the Federation of Swiss Watch Manufacturers.
The Swiss watch industry set up this school under the name of WATCHMAKERS OF SWITZERLAND TRAINING AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM (WOSTEP) in order to train foreign watchmakers in after-sales service methods for watches made in Switzerland.
Candidates must have a minimum of 3 years full-time experience in after-sales service or a watchmaking school diploma.
During their stay in Neuchatel, students are familiarized with a number of different aspects of the Swiss watch industry. Each course includes visits to famous watch museums in Le Locle & La Chaux-de-Fonds. Further, visits to watch companies carrying out after-sales service, manufacturing ( from mainsprings to quartz components) & producing finished watches are also included during the program. Finally, a visit to the Basel Fair is incorporated in the first course of each year.
The leader in watchmaker education for 35 years, is preparing to launch a site on the World Wide Web. Until the site goes on-line, you may inquire about the kits or class schedules at WOSTEP, Rue des Saars 99, 2000 Neuchâtel, Switzerland; TEL: 032/729 00 30, FAX: 032/729 00 35, e-mail email@example.com
