Gold Academy School Testimonials

We attended the course taught by Bob and Debbie the weekend of January 19th, 2013 when they had a scheduled fundraiser, so we were able to both learn the techniques of evaluating, buying and selling gold and silver in class, as well as to observe the process of how Bob approaches the customers. They were very patient with us, ensuring that we understood how to test a variety of metals. Bob and Debbie were knowledgeable and surprisingly open about the practices within the industry. We recommend the course without reservation to anyone interested in learning about the business. Mike and Nancy Berumen, (Columbus MO)


The Gold Academy - Graduating Class

Gold Academy Graduates


I would like to thank you for your professionalism, patience, and true kindness. My son and I both felt very comfortable with you and your office and could not be happier, with all the lessons we learned. We look forward to coming back early next week, so you can teach my wife. I realize my son can show her, but I would feel better if it comes from you. We have a great business plan in place already and requires that we are fully knowledgeable about the business first…. that in my opinion, only you can provide. Again, thank you so very much.” Steven C. 7/25/12


I attended The Gold Academy school on 10-13-12. I was taught to buy and sell gold and silver. Bob and Debbie have put together a very well organized and understandable program. They take their time until you get it right and feel comfortable with the testing and math equations. I highly recommend the training. Brad C., Newnan GA

Marietta GA Thank you so very much for a successful Gold Rush party for the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus this past Saturday. Many of the women were not sure what to expect, however, Arnie spent considerable time explaining the details of how their jewelry was appraised and put them at ease. Each went away, feeling good and very happy with the results of their appraisals. Our organization received a nice size check and the ladies were very pleased. We hope to have another Gold Rush Party in the near future.

Before I was invited to a gold party by my neighbor, I had sent my unwanted gold to that company you see advertising on TV all the time – they offered my $30 so I told them to send it back – I wanted to see what I could get from Gold Fundraising Concepts – they gave me $130. I was so happy I almost cried – literally.  Jennifer (Lawrenceville, GA)

When I was invited to a gold party by my friend, I thought that I did not have much gold to sell. I brought a small baggie of items that were broken or ugly and walked away with $380. It saved my Christmas!  Angela (Suwanee, GA)

I made cash from my old gold!
