The Gemmological Association of Australia has not received the attention or accolades they deserve as educators in the professional field of gemology. Few realize that the GAA is almost as old as the GIA, and offers a program in gemology that surpasses most other institutes in depth of content and student support. The GAA has been turning out some of the world's finest gemologists for decades, but their work has been overshadowed, and often overlooked, due to the huge marketing power of institutes such as the GIA and Gem-A. Weaknesses are few at the GAA since they offer one of the finest programs on the market, and provide their programs at some of the lowest tuition costs on the market. Their highly regarded publication: The Australian Gemmologist is highly respected around the world and considered a top resource for the latest developments in the world of gemstones. They are highly recommended due to their longstanding reputation for quality education.
