The Conner Jewelers’ Bench Certification Program will prepare you to take qualifying exams. Conner Jewelers School is the only school that conducts one on one training enabling you to complete the training in only a few months. Even if you don’t have experience in working with jewelry this program is sufficient for most students to get a “running” start towards efficiency and quality in a relatively short amount of time. If you already have some bench experience Conner Jewelers School recommends the 2 or 3 month program. If you are new to bench work we would advise students to enroll in a 3 or 6 month program. The 6 month program offers quite a bit more “in house” practice as well as exposing our students to a variety of repairs and projects. Because Conner Jewelers is a primary source for custom made jewelry for many “A” list celebrities you will be able to view the creative process up close.
With Conner Jewelers School you will see actual repair jobs that come through our storefront and see how they’re handled. This is a huge advantage no other school in America offers!
