    Could anyone recommend any training lasses for lever harp regulation in Indiana (online or in person)? I have a copy of “Trouble shooting your harp” but I’d also be interested in any college courses, workshops, youtube videos , DVD’s and/or hands-on apprenticeships. thanks Frank

    Who is the certification body? Is it L&H? I hear this term Certified Harp Tech. quite often but I’m unclear as to whether there is one certification body or numerous…similar to accreditation in universities. thanks!

    What is your objective, Frank? To become a go-to tech who can regulate levers for others? I would expect that to entail a study of the half dozen or so different levers: Performance, Camac, Loveland, Jordan, Universal, and so on. And you’ll have to ask each customer how old the harp is because if it’s not settled yet they may be wasting money.

    A certification body may be connected to a school for luthiers who make harps. You might, however, especially if you ask L&H, end up with the certification body for those who regulate pedal actions, with their discs and forks, a bit overkill for an aspiring lever technician.
