Wine & Spirits Education Trust
The Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET) have been providing internationally recognised qualifications for Wine Industry Professionals and enthusiastic amateurs since 1969.
The WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits Course (formerly known as the Intermediate Course) is an entry level wine course which doesn't require the completion of any other wine courses to enrol.
WSET Level 2
The WSET Level 2 Award Course is intended as vocational training in product knowledge for those employed in the drinks industry who have little previous knowledge of the broad range of alcoholic beverages available. The qualification is suitable wherever a good level of product knowledge is required to underpin job skills and competencies.
The course is also appropriate for those not employed in the drinks industry but who are enthusiastic about wine, and wish to broaden their knowledge in a structured way. This qualification provides the knowledge required for those wishing to progress to WSET Level 3.
Please note it is NOT necessary to have completed Level 1 before entering for Level 2.
