Question from Beverly R.
I'm interested in taking this class (Introduction to Jewelry Techniques I), but I see that JD101 should be taken first. Can you tell me how to get the information on JD101, so I can sign up for it if there are openings.
Answer from Ellen G. Verified Student
You can look at FITs online class directory. I took this without the pre-req and dropped out after the first class - it’s not for beginners. Almost everyone had taken the first class JD101 and recommended it. Good luck.
Answer from Beverly R.
Thanks much Ellen!!!! Appreciate your speedy reply.
