What is a Certified Appraisal Professional?
Canadian Jewellers Association has established a set of requirements and a series of practical and theoretical examinations that test the appraising skills of jewellers and gemologists. Upon successful completion of all criteria, these jewellers and gemologists are considered qualified and are empowered to emboss their appraisals with the following seal, signifying their title as a Certified Appraisal Professional-CJA (CAP). A CAP-CJA is required to be maintained as a member in good standing and can utilize only the current year’s seal.
