Hello everyone. I'm about to start my Gem ID course, but it's impossible, because GIA couldn't send stone sets to me, due to war in my country. Because of it, I have to go to the nearest country for some time to finish Gem ID course. I can't stay there for a long time, so I will try to finish that course faster. I will be free all the time, so I will study and work with stones all days long. So if i possible to finish it in 3 months?
I shall be glad to all opinions and advice. Thanks.

A lot has to do with the time involved sending the stones back to the GIA, having everything processed and then sending you a new box of stones.
May I suggest you call GIA, give them the specifics and ask what they think is possible.

Good luck.

Barbra this guy is from Ukrain and he is going to study in Poland. For foreighn countries GIA send stones in 2 parcels, first 20pcs and after this another 480 pcs. I already answered to your friend Mark that you can do it in 3 months if you study a lot. I am doing Gem ID right now

Hello everyone! I have passed GemID course in 4 months. All the post operations and submitting of the worksheets took some extra time. I passed exam on the first time. It wasn't very difficult, but it could consist some tricky stones.
If you have any questions about GemID course - feel free to contact me.
