DDI OFFERS ROUGH DIAMOND VALUATION COURSE TO REPRESENTATIVES OF DIAMOND-PRODUCING COUNTRIES
22 June 2017
The Diamond Development Initiative (DDI) reports that, together with the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC), they are offering a two-week course in rough diamond valuation to representatives of four diamond-producing countries, including Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The goal of the training, which takes place in the context of the Kimberley Process Technical Assistance, is to help the participants develop their skills in valuation, and enhance their country's capacity to implement KP certification at the point of export, says DDI.

Under the training program, students are given a sizeable parcel of diamonds every day, and practice sorting for shape, quality and color, under the guidance of an instructor. In this way, they receive customized training to improve their own skills and adapt their learnings to their country context.

Based on the success of this course, the AWDC and DDI hope to be able to offer a similar opportunity to other countries next year.

The DDI announcement notes that participants from Liberia and Sierra Leone are sponsored by GIZ, the German International Cooperation agency, and the DDI's Technical Assistance role in the KP is supported by Signet Jewelers.
