GIA (Gemological Institute of America) has added courses to the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) schedule following the tremendously positive response from students who attended GIA’s Diamond Grading Lab class in February. The AJP (Accredited Jewellery Professional) diploma recently concluded, whereas the Colored Stone Grading Lab class and Gem Identification Lab class are scheduled to begin later this year. GIA will continue to offer complimentary diamond and gemstone seminars to DMCC members and aspiring professionals.
DMCC is the leading commodities centre in the Middle East and is located at the Almas Tower, home to the Dubai Diamond Exchange.
The Colored Stone Grading Lab and Gem Identification Lab classes will be offered throughout the year. The coloured stone class helps develop skills in grading colour, clarity and cut through classroom instruction and hands-on training. The gem identification lab trains students in the procedures and identification skills used by GIA's gemological experts worldwide.
