RAPAPORT... Jewelers of America (JA), a national trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry marketplace, certified 133 professionals this year from areas such as sales, management and bench jewelry.

The certification adds competitive edge to participating retails stores and enhances trust among the industry’s professionals, the U.S. trade group that established this program in the late 1990s said in a statement November 19.

“JA professional certification helps raise the bar when it comes to professionalism in the jewelry industry,” Susan Posnock, JA’s director of public affairs and education, said in the statement. “JA certification programs promote consumer confidence by validating an individual’s talent, knowledge and jewelry proficiency to consumers seeking trustworthy jewelers.”

The professional sales and management certification program requires candidates to take two-hour examinations. No preparation is required as the test is designed to assess a person’s existing knowledge and expertise.
