I found myself looking forward to my home study sessions.  It was never a chore...easy to see my progress and review.  I am extremely happy with what I learned and proud of what I achieved.

I truly enjoyed every part of this course.  It was one of the most challenging for me and I feel that I learned so much from it.

[The ASC] is designed to force you to explore, research and learn your way towards becoming a much more competent and knowledgeable appraiser.  It has been worth every penny spent and every minute invested.

FTC GUIDES

The FTC creates and enforces rules to address unfair methods of competition and to carry out the laws that protect consumers from deceptive and unfair business practices in particular industries, such as telemarketing, the funeral industry, and the marketing of jewelry and precious metals. They also create guides to inform marketers what kinds of advertising claims would mislead consumers so they can avoid making those claims.  Professional appraisers should also abide by all FTC guidelines as written.  Please click the link below to view the complete Guides for the Jewelry, Precious Metals, and Pewter Industries.
