Invaluable information. I had no formal education in diamonds prior. Was able to learn so much through the courses. Taught in a very succinct and effective manner.





Truly only benefits the jewelry career and does not guarantee promotions.

The course is broken down into 4 classes that can be taken at your own pace. However, course end testing only takes place twice a year. Teaching materials were good and up to date. However, there is not an instructor to go to with questions. You will have to research and find the answer for yourself.
