Jewelry Career Readiness Initiative

Diamond Council of America developed the Jewelry Career Readiness Initiative to help create qualified job candidates for the retail jewelry industry. Through the program, high schools can offer students DCA’s accredited distance-education certifications in diamonds, colored gemstones, and jewelry sales. The turnkey program supplements career-readiness programs that exist in most U.S. high schools.

There are many benefits to the program for school districts and their students. Industry certification can help students obtain part-time jobs during college, and long-range career opportunities as well. DCA offers a referral service to students who successfully complete the program, providing an introductory link to thousands of DCA-member jewelry stores across the United States.

High Schools that participate in the Jewelry Career Readiness Initiative receive:

  • Access to the DCA certification program
  • Special hands-on projects and educational videos
  • Jewelry industry guest speakers
