Frequently asked questions:

  • What is the difference between Blended Learning and e-Learning Modes of Study +

    The Blended Learning is a new option where less physical attendance is required to complete the course. The majority of your learning will take place through structured asynchronous (self-study) learning on our online platform. Once you have completed the required online lessons, you will attend scheduled classroom sessions at JDMIS’ campus (in Singapore) where core techniques and knowledge are reinforced under the guidance of our expert instructors.

    Similar to the Blended Learning, participants of the e-Learning Course will go through self-directed and self-paced learning through our structured online course. After completing the required self-study, participants will attend scheduled live online sessions with an expert instructor and a small group of other online learners.

    In general, the total duration of e-Learning courses is slightly shorter than their blended-learning counterparts due to the absence of physical class attendance. This makes the e-learning courses more affordable, and also a suitable choice for individuals who do not have the option of joining us at the JDMIS Singapore campus.

    For more detailed explanation on the Blended Learning and e-Learning, please visit our Training Mode explainer page.

  • How will the schedules work? +

    Most of your jewellery training will be delivered through HD-quality recordings that you can view at your own pace and convenience. Live session with the instructor (physical for Blended, and online for eLearning) will be scheduled in between or near the end of the course to reinforce your mastery of key concepts.

  • What if I have questions during self-study? +

    The learners from each course will receive access to an exclusive WhatsApp Group where you can get feedback from instructors and engage in discussions with your fellow students. You can also raise your questions during the live lessons with the instructors.

  • How much time do I need to study a week? +

    As most of the course is self-paced, you conduct your study at your own pace that suits your learning style. but the general recommended duration is 1-2 days a week.
  • Are the tools & materials included? If not, how much do I need to pay? +

    The cost of tools and materials is already included in the course fee. All students will receive the same tool kit that they will need to complete their course efficiently. For Singaporean and PRs, the amount will be invoiced and paid separately because tools & materials fees are not covered by SSG funding. Overseas students doing the online only/e-Learning option are eligible to opt out of purchasing the toolkit by letting our registrar know at the time of your registration.

  • How will my assignment be graded and what do I need to pass? +

    You are responsible for completing the online lessons before attending the live sessions with JDMIS instructors. Each course has several milestone assignments which you need to complete and submit by specified deadlines in order for your instructors to review and provide feedback.

    In order for your instructors to review your assignments and provide feedback, you need to take photos/scans of your completed work (design or jewellery piece) and submit them onto the JDMIS online assessment portal.

    You need to obtain an average mark of 60% or higher to pass the course and receive your Certificate of Completion.
