This course covers the material in the first year of the two year Canadian Gemmological Association's program. Completing the two year program prepares you to write the final exam to receive a CGA Diploma. The course is offered once a year on Wednesday evenings from September to June. Supplies and examination fees are additional costs. Students need to register seven days prior to the first class.
Please note that the study of gemmology requires the use of refractive index fluid which contains a small amount of methylene iodide. You will be requested to wear protective gloves.
