Archery Repair School
I am looking to attend a archery repair school to learn how to repair, tune, adjust, and fix bows and arrrows also. If there is such a course that anyone knows about in Texas I would appreciate some info on it. Thank You.

There are no repair schools that I know of. My suggestion would be to get a job part time at a pro shop and have them teach you------the way I learned.

School of hard knocks. Best way to learn. Try practicing on your own bows. Tear it down, throw it on a pile in the middle of the floor, and then put it back together. After ytou screw this up a few times you learn to take all the necessary measurements to get it back the way it was. I digital camera helps, too.
If you can work in a shop, even without pay, the benefits will be pay enough.

A very good first step is LeEarls' DVD.

PSE used to run a dealers school that covered most of those things. Check the PSE website to see if they still do.

Here is where you can buy some videos on bow maintenance:
And here are some books I recommend to you:
Simple Maintenance for Archery.
-by Ruth Rowe and Alan Anderson
Tuning Your Compound Bow.
-by Larry Wise
Bow & Arrow.
-by Larry Wise
There are many more books available. Just do some shopping at Lancaster and Amazon.
Read, watch videos, hang out here and ask questions, buy all the necessary tools and work on your own bows. Other than following DaleB1's advice and getting an apprentice job in a pro-shop, this is the only way to learn bow mechanics.

I agree with the digital camera. Take it apart but before you do take pictures of cam postion, strings etc...

There are people like Dave Couzins who travel around and put on clinics, he was just in Michigan a while back, and I wish that I could have attended. It was $250 I believe, and he taught some tech stuff as well as helping you with your form. You might keep an eye out at the local archery shops for something like that.
