The essential certification for anyone who needs to teach or talk about wine to an audience. This certification from the National Wine School is mission-critical for anyone in wine education. Two students from last year's program are already running their own wine schools, and another is running the wine school's event division.
To be taken seriously in the world of wine education, you must complete wine educator training and earn your certification. If your dream is to open a wine school or a wine event company, this is an obvious necessity. Why would anyone in their right mind attend a wine seminar if the person in front wasn't qualified to teach the subject matter?
Being a certificated sommelier-instructor goes far beyond just wine schools and wine event companies. Many jobs in the wine trade require the ability to teach and communicate. Winemakers, sommeliers, distributors, and wine importers all have to communicate and educate, both to the public and to other professionals. The ability to communicate effectively is the single-most factor in success in the wine trade.
Learn from the best. This five-day accelerated program is taught by the two of America's top wine educators: Keith Wallace, MS and Alana Zerbe, Director of Education at the Wine School of Philadelphia.
