De Beers Diamond Foundation Free Course

De Beers is offering their online Diamond Foundation Course for free

At De Beers Group Institute of Diamonds, they understand the current global health crisis is affecting all industries at all levels. During this time of social distancing and isolation, businesses must find ways to adapt and remain productive. Staying in contact with your members and engaging them may be more difficult than usual during this period, which is why we want to offer our support.

De Beers Group Institute of Diamonds has taken the decision to offer their Diamond Foundation Course for free (normally $250) to the diamond industry.

What is it

The Diamond Foundation Course covers everything from the atomic structure of a diamond to how De Beers Group recovers and sorts rough diamonds. Modules focus on the 4Cs, retail sales skills and the detection of synthetic (lab-grown) diamonds, drawing on the latest findings of De Beers Group Technology. By following this course, students can return to work with a greater understanding and appreciation of the entire diamond industry with the confidence needed to clearly communicate the natural diamond story with customers.
