The AIGS offers what is considered the finest and most complete education in colored gemstones available anywhere in the world. Owing to their proximity to the colored gemstone producing fields of Asia, and their long history for quality education, when you put the two together you have an outstanding program that is second to none in the world. The AIGS course listings include the most complete program in all aspects of gemology of any gemological institute. When the quality of their gemological lab is also considered, the AIGS is simply the total package for anyone who has the time and finances to go to Thailand to study. Weaknesses are few with the cost of tuition and time required being the only serious issues. For those seriously considering a professional career in gemology these costs will be well justified. Beyond that relatively minor issue, the AIGS is by all accounts one of the top gemology institutes in the world.
