I think the paragraph in the Ruby link down below the FAQ section kind of sums it up.

The slogan of these courses could be: Collect all the Pokemon! :)

I mean, these courses are a little bit about one thing, a little bit about another, a little bit about the third, etc.

An eloquent touch: The courses are not about how to determine the treatment and natural origin of a gemstone by inclusions, but for now just about the fact that gemologists generally do this.

However, for the average jeweler or, even more so, an ordinary lover of precious stones, the courses will be very informative. For the basic level, everything is very informative, beautifully designed and easily described.

I signed up for these generously offered courses and believe they were not designed for professionals like you, but for amateurs and passionate people who want to organize their knowledge.
Everything is very clear, well illustrated, and I thank this laboratory for having developed and proposed an interesting gemological approach.
... and of course, Barbra, that the information given is valuable; they do not come from amateurs and I can only note the educational concern of these people.

SSEF adds online courses in Japanese and traditional Chinese to its free-of-charge ‘Understanding Gemstones’ programme
Quote:
BASEL, SWITZERLAND: DECEMBER 09, 2021 – The Swiss Gemmological Institute SSEF has added courses in Japanese and traditional Chinese to its free-of-charge online educational programme, entitled “Understanding Gemstones.”

The courses, which cover diamonds, emeralds, pearls, rubies and sapphires, are now available in five languages – English, French, simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese and Japanese.

The free online Understanding Gemstones programme has been enthusiastically received since it was first launched by SSEF in April 2021. To date, there have been more than 6,000 sign-ups and active students participating on the teaching platform. Indeed, it was in response to greater demand for such gemmological education and knowledge in Asia that SSEF has decided to roll out courses in two additional languages.

“We are impressed at the demand and positive feedback we are receiving for our free online courses,” said Dr. Michael S. Krzemnicki, director of SSEF. “Making gem-learning resources available at no cost to the trade and consumers remains a priority for us. We are pleased to be able to make them even more widely available, and to further connect with the gem and jewellery community in Asia.”
