French Wine Scholar Certification Program
3 sessions plus 1-hr exam
This four-session program drives you to certification in just 10 weeks and is designed for the busy professional.
The format minimizes your travel time and in-classroom commitment while maximizing independent study…all within a structured framework.
There is one four-hour introduction to the program that will review study guidelines, learning objectives, the exam and the focus of study: terroir. The next two full-day review sessions will go over key stumbling blocks within each region with plenty of Q&A to validate your mastery of the material. These are interactive sessions requiring study and preparation in advance of the classroom experience.
The final meet-up is the one-hour exam.
A post-nominal in ten intensive weeks!
