Why Choose Conner Jewelers School?
Conner Jewelers School is noted for its unique “Triple Exposure” method of teaching. This method begins with a video demonstration, followed by a live demonstration followed by a close one-on-one supervision with students. We developed this method years ago and we feel it is the most complete method of providing training to our students. The very low student/teacher ratio in our classes ensures the classes run efficiently at a pace that keeps each student focused on learning.
Conner Jewelers School Reference Materials:
Each Conner’s Student receives an illustrated workbook to use during class and keep following class completion. This workbook includes Course DVD’s that are also yours to keep and refer to in the future. This information can be used as a reference to help you brush up on previously learned skills and techniques following completion on the course.
