2018 SSEF Education programme

Since its successful beginning in 2001, the Swiss Gemological Institute SSEF's education department has offered a broad spectrum of gemmological courses to hundreds of students from industry, trade, and academia.


In 2018 we again offer many possibilities to improve your skills by hands-on practical training in all fields of gemmology. These courses range from beginner to expert-level and are suited to a wide range of gemmological interests. Should you have any further questions about the content of these courses and for course registration, please contact us.
