Online PMC Certification Programme
Questions and Answers
When do we start?
We will start on the 1st June.
A week before we will send you login details for the course, so that you can get used to the format and know what materials are needed.
I’m paying in instalments – how will that work?
Before the course starts we will send you an instalment link to complete and you will pay £50 per month.
Which Facebook page community is the course through?
We will be setting up a new special Facebook community to share progress and support.
What if I need extra one to one support?
If you need extra one to one support for one of more of the projects, you can purchase sessions just for you, to got through, trouble shoot, have demonstrations and ask questions. These will be at an additional cost of £25 for a 30 minute session.
Where can I read more about your recent work?
You can find examples of our work via Facebook https://www.facebook.com/silverandstonejewellery/

This is an example of one of the boards we use to support students https://www.pinterest.co.uk/surreyjewellery/pmc-certification-module-2-high-design/
Is there a schedule of courses I need to attend to?
We will have a series of videos and a programme of work which will be available via our website outside Facebook. This will take you through each step. You don’t need to be there at a specific time, you can pop in and out when YOU can. So you go at your own pace.
The Facebook page is an additional support, you can ask specific questions, have a community of people doing the same work as you and build friendships. If you are struggling, we can have a live demonstration, but that will be kept in the group, so that you can look at it again and again, at any time. We plan to do regular ‘live’ sessions but you will give you advance notice.
How much time will we need to complete the course?
We would expect you to spend approximately 2 hours per week. Each module takes 18 hours in class. We have allowed 3 months for each module online. You can work at your own pace, we know stuff happens!! We would recommend you aim to complete 2 projects per month, but this will vary depending on your time.
How will you examination our work?
The examination is at the end of each project, via photos and video. During the process we would expect you to share photos so that we can help, and make sure you are on the right track. If you are not sure please ask a question in the group. It’s best for us to check so that you don’t go off track! The great thing about a group is that others can help too.
What brand if clay do you work with?
We work with PMC clay. Some projects are PMC3 and some are PMC Flex.
I need lots of time to order materials at the moment – how will that work?
At the beginning of each module we will give you a tool and materials list. You can then order those as soon as possible. If there are specific suppliers, we will direct you to them.
You will also be given a Pinterest link to review samples, student work and inspiration, to start the creative process.
What if I change my mind?
You can book you place now, and have a 14 day ‘cool off’ period and be. However, if you start the course you will have had access to the tuition and the notes, so we would not refund at that stage. If you need to, you can defer the course until you are ready to take it.
