NRBA Level II: Intermediate Blacksmith
This certificate will be awarded to NRBA members who have completed the Level 3, Journeyman training. Interested members will receive a check list of required skills to complete to guide them through the program. Ongoing educational activities will be published in the NRBA Newsletter. There is no guarantee that a teaching opportunity will exist at a time a student is seeking one.
Students will have to prove to their instructor(s) that they understand and can perform the 21 skills listed below. Instructor(s) must sign off on the check list for each separate skill. Students will also present to their instructor(s) a completed project. The farm gate latch (drawing provided) is a suggested project but students have the freedom to make a different project as long as it incorporates all of the same skills. Alternate projects should be pre-approved by the education committee by submitting a drawing with dimensions. Suggested books to use as reference are: The Skills of a Blacksmith Vol.1, Mark Aspery; The New Edge of the Anvil, Jack Andrews and The Back Yard Blacksmith, Lorelei Sims, all available for loan through the NRBA library.
