(NEW YORK) - Jewelers of America (JA), the national trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry retail marketplace, is excited to announce a new educational benefit for its members. Through its strategic partnership with the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Jewelers of America members can now receive 10% savings on tuition to GIA Distance Learning courses and related Lab classes.
Benefits of Distance Learning
GIA's Distance Learning program is comprised of at-home course work and/or lab and online courses, covering the subjects of diamonds, colored stones and jewelry sales. Distance Learning students use the same course materials and textbooks as on-campus courses. Yet, they can study and complete courses at their own pace and schedule, since all materials are delivered to them.
JA members also save 10% on Distance Learning Lab classes, which can be completed at GIA campuses and regional centers in Atlanta, Chicago and Dallas.
Jewelers of America is committed to providing its members with access to the best professional development available. It has long offered its members special scholarships on traditional GIA courses.
