Interested in Studying Gemmology?
Please join us for an information session at our classroom. Meet our instructors who will be able to answer all your questions about our various part time and full time courses.
An optional 5-day Pre-Examination Lab Course is offered in Toronto prior to each examination session, based on demand. This lab session in gem identification and instrument use is primarily intended for CGA registered students who wish extra practice in preparation for the professional-level practical examination, but other qualified individuals may be accepted.
The focus of the week is to give students as many gemstones as possible for viewing and identification, to become comfortable with the instruments and to devote extra time and support to areas of weak understanding. A qualified gemmologist with teaching experience will supervise.
Schedule: 5-days, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Next Session: May 29 to June 2, 2017
Fees: CGA student $675.00/non-student $845.00
