AIGS is a great school with skillful teachers. Even though I started the A.G. Diploma with no experience, after six months of study I had learned enough to be able to enter the gem business. Because if its location within the JTC building, students can go straight from a class to talking to dealers, as making contacts is the key in this field. However, the best thing about the A.G. Program was the teachers, as each possessed different skills and experiences and could therefore provide us with varied points of view with regards to the gem and jewelry industry.
