Jewelers of America relaunches the Bench Professional Certification Program

Jewelers of America (JA), the national trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry marketplace, has relaunched the Bench Professional Certification Program, a program created to promote the professionalism of jewelers and store owners. The newly reworked program provides a tangible way to boost confidence in the ability of the certified bench jeweler to perform quality work.

The JA Bench Professional Certification Program establishes national standards and administers tests to rate the talents and proficiency of bench jewelers at three levels. The levels are: JA Certified Beginner Bench Jeweler (CBBJ), which reflects skills and knowledge generally expected of a trained entry-level bench jeweler generalist performing jewelry repair with about one year’s experience; JA Certified Bench Jeweler (CBJ), that reflects skills and knowledge generally expected of a bench jeweler generalist performing most jewellery repairs with two or more years of experience; and JA Certified Master Bench Jeweler (CMBJ), the highest level of JA Bench Professional Certification that demonstrates mastery at all skill levels.

“We are thrilled to bring back our popular Bench Professional Certification Program at this important time. With bench jewelers demand at a high and a new generation of jewelry professionals entering the industry, we have an opportunity to better serve our jewelers by providing certification opportunities that demonstrate competencies while serving as a platform to improve consumer confidence,” says JA President & CEO David Bonaparte.
