TimeZone Watch School

I would like to learn some basic watch repair.  I'm looking into doing it as a hobby but don't feel I can do it just by watching YouTube videos and dinking around with thrift store watches.  I tried reaching out to a local watch repairer and while he was extremely nice he said he doesn't do any training or offer any classes.  I saw a blog where someone talked about TimeZone Watch School.  Has any fellow WCer been through the program?  What are your thoughts and experiences?  Any other recommendations?


I have not, but am interested in popping into classes myself eventually. The NY Horological Society also hosts various traveling road shows. OR, buy a cheap poorly running watch and see what happens.
