Training tomorrow’s diamond cutters, polishers & gemologists.

When we first relocated to Prince Albert, the idea was to establish the Canadian Diamond Academy- to train Canada’s future diamond artisans. At the time, we made the decision to focus on getting our atelier on track and start cutting and polishing our Sirius Star™…the world’s brightest diamond. It takes a couple of years to become proficient at diamond cutting and polishing, with at least 6 months spent on theoretical training in diamond crystallography. Some may say you can do a crash-course in a week, but that leaves the student without any prospects, and very often no idea how to get started.

 

Diamond cutting is focused, disciplined.

Our goal is to support the growth of the diamond and jewellery manufacturing sector here in Canada. If we are true to our trade, and committed to Brand Canada we will create and sustain a thriving industry right here in Canada. There’s no need to import cutters and polishers from elsewhere, if we train our own North American workforce. With diamond cutting and polishing taking in place across Canada in British Columbia, The Northwest Territories, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan- we are set to petition the relevant government departments to approve and support diamond cutting and polishing as a trade.  

On-the-job training.

Embee Diamonds will lead the industry in launching an on-the-job training program for two Prince Albert-based candidates in April 2016- which will eventually become an apprenticeship training program in  diamond cutting and polishing. Applicants will be expected to provide the following for consideration:

1. Proof of scholastic achievement (grade 12 preferably with math and/or science)
2. Criminal records check certificate provided by R.C.M.P.
3. Recent visual acuity test results.

Applicants will also have to undergo the following for evaluation purposes:

1. Free Dexterity Test
2. Free Spatial Perception Test

For further information, please send an email to apprentice@embeediatech.ca.

Please do not call us at this stage.
