Precious Metals Assay and Training Institute

A Glittering Career in Precious Metals

Every precious metal has its own delicate sheen, which is a reflection of its purity but this purity needs to be validated through testing, or in technical terms-Assaying. Assaying is thus defined as the process of determining precious metals content in an alloy. This scientific process, which requires thorough training, is a much-sought-after profession in the jewellery industry. Anticipating this booming demand for professionally trained assayers in India, the Indian jewellery industry has launched a one-of-its-kind initiative in the form of the Precious Metals Assay and Training Institute (PMATI) – a not for profit joint venture between the World Gold Council and MMTC-PAMP Pvt.
