WSET – Online Distance Learning

For those not living within easy driving distance wishing to gain certification through the Wine and Spirit Education Trust® we are pleased to now offer the Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits through on-line distance learning.

How does it work? 

Students are advised to book at least 2 weeks ahead of the start date, to allow for materials (WSET Study Package) to be delivered and pre-reading. Students registering less than 6 working days before the start of the course will incur a $50 late booking fee. Course materials will be posted to a student’s home upon confirmation of payment of fees.   You may be subject to additional courier fees for those registering after the registration deadline.

Students are provided with a login for the online classroom.  The online classroom will provide you with activities, group tastings, feedback tests and a full mock up examination.

Computer Needs:
It will be assumed that students have basic computer literacy and internet navigation skills.  See Course Description for your minimum computer requirements.
