This WSET Level 1 Award in Spirits course will be based around a 4-week, 5 module online learning program with educator support available for this time. The course modules should be followed in sequential order during this 4-week window. The course material should take about 6 hours in total to complete, plus revision time. Regular access and participation in the course online activities is essential for this mode of study.

The course prepares the student for the WSET qualifications and they are guided by a WSET educator. The student can contact the educator any time for the duration of the scheduled course, should they have any questions. Each module includes a series of independent activities to help students understand the differences between spirit types and styles. Students should be advised to taste a range of spirits during their studies. All the required spirits for the course can be found in the “Recommended Tasting Samples for this Course” section online. Any additional spirits can be found in the Specification. Students can post their tasting notes in the Online Classroom for review by the educator.

The exam is online and remotely invigilated and takes 45 minutes to complete. Registrants should access the “RI-Candidate Information” document in the FAQ section of the website under “Can I Take My WSET Exam Online” to determine if this method of exam delivery is right for you.
