An in-depth course, combining remote learning and a 1 week laboratory experience. The personal study section of the programme provides the students with detailed theoretical knowledge of the diamond pipeline. The following 1 week laboratory experience develops the practical skills required to accurately assess the 4Cs, and students will be assessed during the practical examination at the end of the week.
The theoretical part of the course will be completed through distance learning. For the laboratory experience, the number of attendants for each sessions are kept low to ensure the best possible learning experience.
The theoretical part of the course is textbooks based. The textbooks cover detailed diamond theory and prepare students to complete online assessments, provided at the end of each book.
The 1-week laboratory experience aims to put the theoretical knowledge in context by giving the students the chance to work on carefully selected polished diamonds from the De Beers Group.
The experience will include exposure to the specially designed ‘Grader Aider’ technology, developed by the De Beers Group.
