The day of an apprentice, while not exactly strenuous compared to other crafts, is rather full nonetheless. Apprentices are expected to be up early in the morning to get their chore assignment for the day, as well as their class schedule. After breakfast, apprentices disperse either to their morning classes, or assigned chore group for the day, which could consist of anything from polishing the big farviewer to weeding around the hall. Most apprentice classes, except for advanced senior apprentices, cover the broad spectrum of topics, including weather forcasting, observation, theory and physics, as well as classes in the construction of farviewers in conjunction with the glass and smithcrafts. As an apprentice gets closer to advancing in rank, classes become more specialized around topics of his or her interest in preparation for the journeyman's specialty. After the second meal of the day, apprentices usually trade of; those that had chores in the morning take class, while those with classes do their daily chores. Twice a sevenday, or more, depending on the apprentice's apptitude, students stay up late to practice observation with craft-owned farviewers, often observing into the wee hours of the night (these apprentices are often given a bit of leniency about their rising time in the morning).

Advancing: A new apprentice, after studying enough to get a basic general knoweledge of the craft may create a project, that, when approved by a senior journeyman or master, they may complete to move up to the rank of senior apprentice. (OOC Note: This project can be anything from a coded project to a report to a TP.) Senior aprentices of at least seventeen turns of age may attempt a journeyman project in hopes of advancing in the ranks. It is expected, though not required, that the project by in the topic the apprentice would wish to study as a journeyman.
