What Students Are Saying...

"Since receiving my Diamond Council Of America [Beginning] Jewelry Sales Certification, I have already begun using the skills And knowledge learned in the course. I am a member and competitor in DECA, an association Of marketing students.
In January, I competed in my area's regional DECA competition in the Principles of Marketing Event. To compete, I was given a role play scenario and, after ten minutes of preparation, delivered my presentation to a judge. In this event, my scenario required me to play the role of a person interviewing for a sales associate position at a jewelry store! In preparation of the role play scenario, I remembered back to what I learned from DCA, and I used that knowledge in my presentation. I ended up winning first place at the regional competition which qualified me for state, where I placed first also. I am currently preparing to compete at the international level.
I have DCA to thank for getting me this far and teaching me something I am able to use in my day-to-day life."
