“GIA has offered distance education courses since 2009,” said GIA India’s managing director Sriram Natarajan, the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion council reported on its website.

“We’ve listened to feedback from the industry and come up with this mode of learning to continue sharing GIA’s decades of knowledge. And, we are proud to offer the Swift Jewellery Design Course– Remote Learning. Through this course, we want to deliver a rich learning experience for students without the need for them to relocate– particularly with the Covid-19 restrictions.”

The digital learning programme will launch on June 28 and will introduce students to the basic principles of jewellery design and composition. The programme will last ten days and be conducted in morning and afternoon batches featuring video lessons and demonstrations. 
“We have invested in the state-of-the-art screen projection technology to help deliver exceptional student experience,” said the director of the GIA’s India School, Manoj Singhania.

“Combined with a live and interactive instructor-led environment, Swift Jewellery Design Course– Remote Learning will deliver a GIA campus-like experience virtually.”
