De Beers launches diamond education experience with Ridgeway
Ridgeway have delivered an education hub for The International Institute of Diamond Grading & Research (IIDGR), part of The De Beers Group of Companies.
This will house the Group’s first online education course, aimed at sharing knowledge with industry members across the globe.
The Diamond Foundation Course consists of eight modules which span across different elements of the diamond industry. This will include topics such as how diamonds grow and are mined, through to how they are marketed and sold to the end consumer.
The website is built on the Kentico EMS platform and features eLearning, reporting and insight dashboards, and an ecommerce platform for online payment management of the course.
Jodine Perrin, IIGDR’s director of education and training, said: “We are incredibly excited and proud to see this first online education course go live.
“We look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on the diamond industry, as well as the quality of service customers will receive as a result from those retailers who invest in this professional development.”
