AWI To Host WOSTEP Tests

Part of effort to centralize testing process in North America

The American Watchmakers/Clockmakers Institute will be the official testing site for all U.S. and Canadian watchmaking students finalizing studies certified by the Watchmakers of Switzerland Training and Education Program, known as WOSTEP.

The week-long test is given to students who complete the 3,000-hour WOSTEP program in any of only a few WOSTEP-certified U.S. and Canadian schools. The next test will be in June, '99.

William Ewbank, executive director of the AWI, says WOSTEP Director Antoine Simonin agreed to the arrangement in part to centralize the U.S. testing process at a "neutral" location, rather than shifting it among watchmaking schools.
