Costs and transparency of the Gemology Course
We don’t ask you to pay in advance for our courses. Our philosophy is that we don’t sell a pig in a poke. Our first lesson is free so you can expierence the quality of our classes.
During the second lesson you should make a payment for just the current month without being tied to future classes. You can drop a course if you are not 100 percent satisfied or due to personal reasons.
Total transparency, strong moral principles and high ethical standards – these were the first lessons the Director of this Institute learned in the Gemological Institute of America, which name, when pronounced, made the walls tremble in the gemological instituts all over the world.
So, when our students start their business, we ask them to act the way we do: Do not sell certified Gemstones directly from yourselves. It’s unethical and will hardly attract customers to your business. Always spare in mind any conflict of interests.
