Florida - The Asheford Institute of Antiques, an internationally recognized distance-learning program that teaches individuals about antiques, collectibles and appraising, recently rolled out its first ever online e-Course.
Described by school spokesperson Shelly Dumont as a watershed moment for the Institute. Dumont said the school's first foray into e-learning was consistent with Asheford's innovative and groundbreaking teaching techniques employed over the last 50 years. "When we offer something new, we like to make sure it's done right." said Dumont at an industry gathering earlier this month.
After almost a year of beta-testing by international students, a statement from school Director, Charles Green, seemed to indicate a "full" release date for the new e-Course to be some time in July. "We're really pleased with it so far," said Green, "...at almost double the size of our current Textbook Course, this is really going to set the bar for future antique and appraising education."
Interested parties should check with the school's web site for updates and reveal schedules.
