    The Atmos Repair course is a class for the advanced students wanting to learn the repair of the Atmos clock. It contains hands-on practice in component definition, part handling, disassembly, cleaning, and assembly, troubleshooting and testing.


    The Atmos Repair course is a three-day class for the advanced students wanting to learn the repair of the
    Atmos clock. It contains hands-on practice in component definition, part handling, disassembly, cleaning, and
    assembly, troubleshooting and testing. Students are required to bring their own clock.
    The only Atmos clocks models 519-522-526 & 528 are covered. The clock must be complete or the student
    has to have already purchased any replacement parts, because the instructor will not have any parts.
    IMPORTANT: The Atmos clock has small glass hard pivots making disassembly and assembly very critical.
    The student must understand if one breaks during the class that the instructor will not be able to repair or
    replace it. If a part is broken the student may still follow along with the class, but they will not be able to test
    their clock.
    Prerequisite: An advanced class requiring at least one year of clock or watch repair experience, plus completion of
    either the FSW F102 or F301 courses.

    The time for the Atmos class in Texas is drawing near. If you would like to attend the class I suggest you register soon. I try to limit the class to 6 students so it fills up quickly.
    Prerequisite: An advanced class requiring at least one year of clock or watch repair experience, plus completion of
    either the FSW F102 or F301 courses. If you haven't taken these classes we may be able to work something out, but I must speak to you before registering. Please feel free to contact me.

    Good Afternoon.
    I am in South Africa, not much in the way of training here. Not even a single Chapter. Is there any chance of a course Dvd, being made available for the international market. Thank you. Mark
