    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.

    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!

    Technician Class Reviews

    Posted by Marv J. (North Carolina) on Sep 27th 2022

    I just finished the advanced class today. It was two days. I completed the 100 class the 3 days prior to the advanced (three days in duration). I cannot recommend these two classes enough.
    At first, I was worried I got scammed until I showed up and the instruction started. The 6 guys I attended the class with at lunch break were talking and none of us could believe the level of knowledge we gained that morning. If you have any doubts or are worried…don’t. This is exactly what bow technicians need. After taking these two classes you will be miles ahead in maintenance and tuning than any shop around.

    Once I have a shop up and running (and can afford to hire employees), I will be sending them to Fulcrum Archery for the 100 class. I will not hire anyone that does not agree to attend this 5 Star course.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the school, and ask for my phone number and give me a call. I will gladly talk to you about it and let you know that it is worth every penny and then some. You get lectures as well as a ton of hands on to reinforce what you learned in the lectures

    Marv,
    Super Happy Customer

    Basic school
    5 stars
    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.

    Advanced course
    I honestly wonder how much more there could be to build on past the basic course, but I was pleasantly surprised. The advanced course dove even deeper to some of the topics that were just touched on during the basic course. I highly recommend both courses enthusiastically.

    Bow Maintenance Class

    Posted by Jennifer Cottingham on Mar 21st 2022

    This class was fantastic! Lots of information with tons of hands on. Perfect for the archer who has never maintenanced a bow but wants to learn how in order to maintenance their bow or open their own shop. This class will give you the skills you need to repair and tune bows upon completion. Class provides access to the different types of bows so that you get tinker time on them all. Can't wait to take the String and Master Classes. Thank you for allowing me to become part of the Fulcrum Family! Ace and B

    Took the glass this past October and was please with the amount of information Troy had to pass along. The class was well thought out and had hands on breakout sessions spread throughout the course to keep everyone engaged. Will be going back again to catch the day 4 session and re-visit some of the different techniques after gaining some more hands -on experience . Troy and his co-instructors were very helpful and available for all questions relating to archery and the industry.

    This school was an excellent investment. During the school you learn a ton of information and everything is very hands on. The school is good for professionals, beginners, or anyone looking to further their knowledge of archery. After completion of the course you will have the confidence to go home and get to work on anything and everything. The awesome thing is that they don’t just leave you high and dry after the school is over, everyone is great at continuing to help long after the class is over. Troy Albert has a team of very professional and down to earth people that will help get you started in the right direction. Look forward to a lifelong relationship.
