    I am interested in taking your courses. I am currently based in Iloilo but I do go to Manila from time to time. I would like to inquire how long your courses take and if you have a schedule for it. Thank you..

    • Maria Isabel Salvador Says:

      Hi Christine,
      Seminar/Training are usually done on a private tutorial/on-on-one as most inquirees would prefer to. We only arrange schedules for group seminars/trainings. Individual courses will take about 5 hours (half day) while for a package course will be on a five(5) consecutive days on a half day.
      Most of my students from the provinces, would request for a shorten period and we do it whole day for three (3) consecutive days.
      Please do inform me of the schedule you most prefer.

    i am ineterested in package course but i am based here in isabela, i just want to knw if you conduct courses here..

  3. Maria Isabel Salvador Says:

    Hi Maggie,
    If you could invite at least a minimum of 10 participants who are interested to take a package course then I could hold a seminar in your place, Isabela. I got students from other provinces like Iloilo, Tarlac, Bataan and more but they were the ones who came here in manila for the courses.
    Some pawnshop chains from the provinces invite me to come over their place, main office, for a conduction of their staffs (appraisers) training/upgrading their skills on gold and diamond appraisal.
    If you are planning to engage in the industry of pawnshops, I would like to congratulate you in advance because you were very good in choosing the right business, a very profitable one.
    At MIMPSS aside from learning all the topics to be taken up per course module, you will also learn all the secret of the trade and more on hands – on practices in appraising gold and diamond. Will also share to you my experiences, good and bad, from the start of my learning till I got the expertise on both how pawnshop is being operated and managed and on the skill itself.
    Hope we could find ways in meeting up.
    My best regards,
    Isabel

    • Ma.Isabel Salvador Mendoza Says:

  9. Bernard Says:

    Hello: is your school affiliated with Gem School America? I want to take the pawnbroker training course like the one offered by Gem School America, or if you are affiliated with them, will you be offering any pawnbroker training in the United States? Thanks, Bernard

    • Ma.Isabel Salvador Mendoza Says:

      Hi Bernard! No am not..I am based here in the Philippines and gives training on jewelry appraising & pawnshop operation only here in our country. I can recommend you to my friend Jerry Whitehead of pawnshop consulting group. He can help you with your interest in this field.

      • Bernard Says:

        Thanks for reply. I looked at Mr. Whitehead’s website, and though they offer different courses, they offer nothing for hands-on diamond grading like Gem School America has that pawnbroker training course with hands-on grading with actual diamonds and a top level instructor … sort of like how you teach, actual practical training instead of just reading all theory out of a book. The way you do is the best way.
