What is SSEF Alumni?

SSEF Alumni has been launched in 2005 as an organisation for course participants and graduates of SSEF Swiss Gemmological Institute and FGA (Fellows of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain).
As you have followed courses at the SSEF Swiss Gemmological Institute or as participant at the FGA formation, you have gained theoretical and practical experience in gemmology. It is the aim of SSEF Alumni to support you to further enhance your skills in gemmology and to maintain your personal ties with other course participants in future.
SSEF Alumni has been launched as a platform for the exchange of information on gemstones, and will give you the unique opportunity to connect to people sharing the same passion and profession world-wide.

SSEF Alumni organises exclusive meetings and gatherings (see News) in Switzerland but also in other countries to enable the exchange of information and to provide you with updates about the most recent developments in the gem trade. Furtheron, SSEF Alumni organises field trips (see News) exclusively for ist members apart from the annual SSEF Alumni dinner each spring.

As SSEF Alumni member, you profit from a wide range of offers, including reduction for SSEF courses, instruments from SSEF and System Eickhorst®, free-of-charge promotion of your business on the SSEF Alumni website, and networking with other SSEF Alumni members world-wide (for details, see SSEF Alumni benefits). SSEF Alumni membership is 50.- Swiss Francs per year. SSEF Alumni is full of possibilities and will become even more lively with your active participation. Thus we appreciate your contribution and ideas as a SSEF Alumni member very much (contact [email protected]).
