IGI Debuts Online Learning Courses


The International Gemological Institute (IGI) recently launched “IGI eLearning Courses” on diamonds, gemstones and jewellery. 


IGI eLearning Courses” is a brand new interactive online educational series, featuring lessons designed to educate people selling jewellery and those that want to learn more about diamonds, gemstones and jewellery.


The on-demand courses provide fundamental gemological education while emphasising key information buyers are most interested in. Each course takes less than 45 minutes to complete with questions asked along the way and ends with a 12-question quiz. 


The course is passed with a quiz score of 80% or better and the student will receive a PDF summary. Once all the courses are passed, the learner will receive an IGI Certificate of Completion.


These new e-learning courses are delivered differently than other online education. Users answer questions along the way, verifying the material is understood. Interactive courses have 80% higher engagement than traditional online learning, keeping users interested with points they can use with clients in-store right away,” said John Pollard, senior director of education in IGI. Our industry is evolving rapidly. These courses emphasise the talking points which are useful immediately, whether you are a seasoned professional or completely new to diamonds.”


In addition to the interactive e-learning courses, IGIs educational offerings and diploma programmes are currently taught at 14 schools of gemmology around the world, including a wide array of gemstone grading and jewellery design courses, instructional seminars and webinars.
