This qualification builds on the knowledge and skills taught in the Awards in Wine which is a pre-requisite to gain entry for this course. If your staff don’t have a Level 1 or above in Wines, don’t worry, we can arrange to run a 2-consecutive day course for you (day 1 would be the Level 1 Award in Wines and exam followed on day 2 by the Level 1 Award in Wine Service assessment). Just contact us for more information.
Typically run in 1 day, it’s perfect for front-line staff involved in the service or sale of wine.

Q. What is the recommended self study time for this programme?
