The best part: No studying!
Jewelers of America (JA) is offering its Sales and Management Professional Certification exams on March 13 at Manhattan’s Jacob Javits Center during the JA New York Show.
The exams require no studying, as they validate existing skills and knowledge. Certifications are open to all jewelry professionals.
JA established the Professional Certification program in the late 1990s. In 2016, 70 jewelry professionals completed JA Professional Certification, making for a lifetime total of over 650.
“When our jewelers have certified professionals on staff, it is an additional differentiator and consumer confidence booster that can help to build long-lasting relationships,” said JA president and CEO David J. Bonaparte in a statement. “We strongly encourage all jewelers to take a little time during the show to improve their business and get themselves or their staff members certified.”
