Requirements for becoming an Apprentice

In medieval times all masters had to first become an apprentice to someone who is very knowledgeable in a particular field of study. Through the advancement process, it is the intent of Warwick to teach its members not only history but also servant leadership skills.

After completing all requirements as set forth by Warwick for advancement to Apprentice, a member will partake in a Apprentice Ceremony. At this ceremony, the Apprentice will select a Noble or Knight as their sponsor. Sponsoring an Apprentice requires the Noble or Knight to serve as a mentor and guide to the new Apprentice. The Apprentice becomes part of the Noble's household and as such will continue to wear the tabard of their sponsoring Noble until the Apprentice advances to a Master. The Bowman will aid their Noble in any duties or tasks needed on behalf of their Noble or Knight in regards to Warwick. An Apprentice may wear nearly any medieval style attire in addition to their noble's tabard. However, an Apprentice is not entitled to carry or wear any weapons or armor unless participating in a tournament.
