The FHH Academy celebrates its tenth anniversary

After a decade of shaping horological minds, the FHH Academy proudly celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2024. The organisation’s impressive journey over the years has been marked by several significant achievements, all aimed at spreading and democratising watchmaking education and culture. Since its founding, the FHH Academy has empowered over 30,000 alumni with the only international training programme of its kind.

Several other highlights have broadened its offering over the past ten years, including the creation of the Watch Live application in 2019, which allowed the Academy’s audience to grow substantially. The successful deployment of Watch Essentials e-modules and live courses, followed by Watch Specialist and Watch Experts courses (in increasing order of difficulty) represent further turning points over the years.

Initially, these programmes were aimed at educating members of the watch industry, particularly sales staff. However since 2019, the FHH has opened its Watch Essentials training courses to the general public, with plans in the works to extend this to all its training in the near future, in keeping with the Academy’s philosophy of inclusivity and accessibility in the watchmaking sector.

Furthermore, out of all its students, over 10,000 have gone on to be granted official FHH Certification, the only distinction of its kind in the industry. For its recipients, it represents a deep dive into both the technical mastery and the cultural heritage of watchmaking, offering a comprehensive understanding that transcends mere mechanics.

As part of this significant year in its history, 2024 will see the FHH Academy gearing up to host a series of dynamic events across key markets around the globe. These events are not only a showcase of the Academy’s rich educational offerings but also an opportunity to celebrate the art of watchmaking with enthusiasts and industry professionals alike.
