On completion of this workshop, students will be able to use basic gemmological equipment to assess the core characteristics of the 4Cs and handle polished diamonds with a high degree of confidence.
The day is structured around key learning points and participation in exercises designed to act out each aspect of diamond grading.
The course is delivered in a laboratory style setting, where the number of students is limited to provide the best possible experience.
Browse for dates and locations to suit you and learn from an experienced Final Grader from within De Beers Group. Or contact us to arrange a bespoke internal event for your company where 15 or more students require training.
This course is a great next step for students who have successfully completed the Diamond Foundation Course online and now wish to gain practical experience of the 4Cs grading process. (Studying the DFC is not mandatory to attend the course).
At the end of the workshop students are presented with a independently accredited ‘Certificate of Attendance’. The workshop is internationally accredited by the CPD.
