What is the Rough Diamond Course?

As a brick and mortar school We started training students in 1980 at our facility in Florida. Since those days we have learned as much about the education industry as our students have about Diamonds themselves.

As a single location school we recognize the difficulty our extensive programs may create for some students, which developed into a demand for some portions of our curriculum to be made available online. After several years of reviewing lesson plans than can be adopted to the internet model versus physically being able to handle the stones in our classroom and countless photography sessions, descriptive photograph reviews, additional self tests and interactive lessons we are proud to offer the first ever online Rough Diamond Evaluation Program geared for beginners and industry professionals alike.

We still offer training in person and actually recommend it for students that want a more hands on approach and advanced studies. Feel free to explore more about our parent school the American Institute Of Diamond Cutting.
