I haven't seen anyone post about this, but there is a new online course about pearls sponsored by the CPAA (Cultured Pearl Association of America). It can be found at PearlsAsOne.org. http://www.pearlsasone.org/ The course covers Akoyas, freshwater, Tahitian, white South Sea and golden South Sea. Additional sections are planned. You will receive a certificate upon successful completion. There is a lot more information about this course on the other pearl information site.

I didn't realize the course was all finished. It's been a while since I checked it out.

Also it's worth mentioning that although the course fee is $599, if you subscribe to the PP or PoJ newsletters, you should have received a code or link to complete the course free of charge.

Yes, I was very generous of them to offer the class to us for free. When I get settled from my move I plan to take advantage of it. I signed up when they offered it to all at the Ruckus.

And, CPAA sent out an announcement, and they also had a code. Worth seeking.

I signed up promptly when I got the newsletter from PoJ. Not sure when I will have time to get started, but it looks fantastic. I'm really looking forward to it!

Feel so good from knowing nothing about pearl to be a certified pearl specialist! :lol:
