The Guilds are Here!

Enriching the learning experience with the power of the Guilds.

Learning on your own can be very overwhelming.  The truth is that you are not alone.  You are part of a vibrant community as a member of the Watts Online School.  We’ve put together a program that leverages the knowledge and passion of the entire Watts community.  We are calling it the Guilds.


New Course Certifications

Complete assignments and track your progress through the program.  View your curriculum anytime.


Revolutionary Mentoring Program

Accelerate your learning by becoming a mentor.  Study under an advanced student and give back by helping others.


New Mastery Levels

Progress from Apprentice all the way to Master Guildsman.  Learn more about the benefits of attaining the higher Mastery Levels.


New Course Certifications

  •  Track your progress through each course

  • View your overall progress on your “My Curriculum” page

  • Assignments are taken directly from the workbook

  • Each assignment is graded as complete or incomplete

  • After you finish each course you will receive a Certificate of Completion


Revolutionary Mentoring Program


You can now select a Mentor from the other students.  You can select a mentor who is at a higher Mastery Level (see below) than you.  Mentoring is entirely voluntary.  You can change mentors at any time.

Once you become a Journeyman (see below), you can start mentoring others if you want. Mentoring can become one of the most rewarding parts of your education.  You get the opportunity to help others through the program while reenforcing the course concepts with you.  As you grow through the program the people you are mentoring are growing too.  And the people they are mentoring as well!  Before you know it you will have a Mentorship tree of 10’s, 100’s or more students underneath you.  Although that can be a lot of responsibility, it can also be a great motivator as you bring meaning to so many in the community.

Learn more at the Mentoring FAQ.



New Mastery Levels


We’ve established Mastery Levels in the program starting with Apprentice and progressing through Master Guildsman.  Just like in the original Guilds, everyone in the program starts out as an Apprentice.  There are certain tasks that each student needs to complete in order to advance to the next level.  You can visit the Master Levels page to see the requirements for achieving each level.  Tasks include completing Course Levels in your curriculum, mentoring others (see above), completing Skill Cycle Challenges, and more.

Training on your own, can be an overwhelming endeavor.  The Mastery Levels give everyone more structure and a better sense of progress/achievement through the program.  As you progress through the program and attain higher Mastery Levels, we want to reward you with your hard work.

    I like the new system. The quizzes make the information very clear what we are to know. It forces one to become more organized.
