(ARRINGTON, Tenn.) – New Approach School for Jewelers is proud to reveal their new CAD Academy MatrixGold® Training Program. Already known in the industry as a leader for instructing with innovative techniques for both emerging and advanced jewelers, New Approach School for Jewelers (NASJ) has announced open enrollment for students interested in expanding their industry knowledge, sharpening their skills, and learning how to use the latest CAD technologies.
NASJ’s Unique Perspective
One key difference between CAD Academy and other programs is that it provides students with a unique perspective on industry techniques and tools. From the first class, each student embarks on a holistic and hands-on, educational journey. NASJ’s CAD Academy mission is to create Cadsmiths – and it starts with learning from master CAD artist, Christopher Mendola. Chris, with decades of experience over multiple CAD platforms, is steeped in knowledge and his students will greatly benefit from his instructions in a state of the art, interactive environment.
NASJ’s Partnership with Gemvision
Another element that sets CAD Academy apart is the school’s collaboration with Gemvision, a recognized leader in CAD technology and design software. It is constantly evolving its software to create user-friendly and capable solutions.
As the jewelry industry evolves, with an increased emphasis on technology and efficiency, Gemvision’s tools will continue to progress to meet jeweler and jewelry customers’ needs. NASJ offers the company’s advanced tools to CAD Academy students. Students in the program will learn and train on a platform that will always be relevant in the marketplace.
New Approach founder and president, Blaine Lewis expressed his excitement about collaborating with Gemvision. “This partnership will merge the two sides of the spectrum. On one hand you have industry giant Stuller where users can get anything from casting grain to tools to finished mountings. On the other, you have the most respected trade school in the industry who trains jewelers to be the best bench jeweler.”
Gemvision voiced support of the new liaison with New Approach. “We share the school’s ‘customer-first’ mindset and are proud to join forces with New Approach’s CAD Academy as we develop the next generation of jewelers.”
