The American Society of Appraisers is pleased to announce the offering of GJ202 – Introduction to Gems & Jewelry Appraising—Intended Use, Insurance Coverage course to be held April 30-May 3 in Carlsbad, CA.

This course is open to both ASA and non-ASA members. It is required for those seeking ASA accreditation. Although intended to teach the basics, it will also appeal to practicing gems and jewelry appraisers, offering the most current information regarding terminology and USPAP requirements and the opportunity to network with appraisers from across the country. Upon completion of this course, the student will possess the tools and confidence necessary to write gem and jewelry appraisal reports for insurance coverage in compliance with USPAP and ASA report writing requirements.

“Continuing education is of paramount importance to practicing jewelry appraisers”, says Teri Brossmer, a Glendora, CA based gemological and valuation expert who holds ASA, MGA® and G.G. designations. As education chair for the Society’s Gems and Jewelry discipline, Brossmer adds “We strive to provide our members with the best jewelry appraisal education available. The subject matter covered in this course is immediately applicable to our daily practice as professional jewelry appraisers.”

Tuition is $895 for ASA members and $1,145 for non-members.

The course will take place at the Gemological Institute of America’s (GIA) World Headquarters in Carlsbad, California.

Grants for students to pay for tuition are available from the ASA Educational Foundation.
