    A Bullseye in Archery Education

    Posted by John Wickline on Mar 16th 2024

    As a new business owner looking to offer archery services, this training course provided me with the essential skills and confidence to maintain and repair bows for my customers. The knowledge gained from the course has not only improved the quality of service I can provide, but has also given me a competitive edge in the industry.

    The hands-on experience and expert guidance Troy Albert provided during the training has equipped me with the expertise needed to troubleshoot and address technical issues efficiently. This course has not only broadened my understanding of bow mechanics but has also empowered me to offer a higher level of customer satisfaction.

    In conclusion, this course was a transformative and invaluable experience that has significantly improved my abilities as an archery business owner. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow in this field, and I am excited to implement what I have learned to enhance my business operations. I highly recommend Troy Albert and his course to anyone seeking to expand their knowledge and expertise as an archery technician or business owner.

    Bow Technician

    If you’re looking to take your archery knowledge to the next level and beyond, this is the class for you. As a very green person in the archery world, I couldn’t imagine learning what I learned at Fulcrum Archery. There is no place like it in the world! The combo of Troy’s knowledge and top notch facility is simply the best! If you’re even considering this course with any level of experience in the archery world, just do it you will be glad you did. I would fly half way across the country again in a heartbeat to take the class. So thankful I attended this course and the Masterclass!

    Technician School

    Posted by Stephen I. on Nov 16th 2023

    Undeniably the best Archery Technician School in the world. The facility is top notch offering students hands on experience with the full range of equipment and tools in the market. Course instructors possess a strong depth of knowledge across the full spectrum of archery topics. The course offers a lecture/lab structure which informs students, challenges them with a variety of realistic scenario's for bow owners or pro shops, and enhances their skill level regardless of experience level. Great course for beginners or veterans. You will leave the course with a much greater understanding and appreciation for the history, design, technical, and industry aspects of archery. Thanks to Troy and the Fulcrum Team!!!

    Tech School

    Posted by Ryan G. on Apr 3rd 2023

    I recently attended the Fulcrum Archery Bow Technician School as well as the Master Class. Troy was an amazing teacher and coming from someone who thought he knew a lot already about archery I learned more than I could have ever imagined. I now have the confidence and the tools to work on my own equipment. After leaving the classes I tuned my own bow and it is shooting better than I have ever seen. EVERY SERIOUS ARCHER NEEDS TO TAKE THESE CLASSES!!!

    100 & 300 Bow Tech Class.

    Posted by Pete Combs on Mar 30th 2023

    The 100 series bow tech class is a must for anyone that is serious about compound bow archery, competitive archers, COACHES, and self reliant hunters, or anyone getting into the bow tech service industry. This class will blow your mind with what you thought you knew and what you didn’t know. You may leave the class frustrated because you may realize what crappie bow tech work you’ve been paying for!

    The 300 Series class is a must for bow techs and any self reliant archers with sufficient understanding of the material in the 100 series bow tech class and want to be able to get the best performance out of the bows. Again, lots of info that you probably won’t find on YouTube.

    Bow Tuning 100

    Posted by Theodore Garbera on Oct 3rd 2022

    I wasn't sure what to expect, even after the detailed explanation on the web page. Considering this looked like the only game in town as far as an in depth technician school I came in with a very open mind, and honestly medium expectations.
    This class was fantastic. I feel like I have a PhD in archery now. I don't think there is an aspect of archery that I am not at least familiarized with, and in most cases I would feel very knowledgeable. I am ready to both tune, and repair any bow someone brings to me, all I need now is experience, which cannot be taught.

    Bow tech school

    Posted by David McCoy on Oct 3rd 2022

    One thing I can say is that instructor does not teach how to put a kisser button or nose button on, and we sell those to at least 85% of our customers. That's the only complaint I had.

    100 Bow technician school

    Posted by Wade Ross (Utah) on Sep 28th 2022

    This is a must do class for anyone wanting to work on bows. I have tried a few pro shops and wasn’t happy with the results so I bought some equipment and started working on my own bows. Using YouTube and anything I could to tune my bow only to find out there’s a lot of info out there for the easy road and just do this.

    I kept thinking there has to be a better way. I started looking for training and really this is the only school that fit what I was looking for. I singed up and after the first 4 hours I realized this is exactly what I was looking for! Instructor is very knowledgeable and straight to the point. He can challenge any student that is excelling and turn and help any that are struggling so no matter what level your at he makes it fit so it’s a challenge.

    I’m not going to call any shops out or videos. All I will say is if you are taking your bow in to get tuned I would ask if they are certified through Fulcrum and if not I would find someone who is. Working on them is not everyone's game but if you spend a few grand on archery equipment then ensuring it shoots to the best of its ability is everyone’s goal. This cannot be accomplished without the proper knowledge, training and skill set which is all learned at Fulcrum. Best thing I’ve done and I found my love for working on bows runs deeper then I thought I could have stayed and kept on tuning different bows!

    Also they give you a contact to be able to reach out in the future! Thanks for an awesome class and I’m full steam on opening my own shop I can’t wait!
