Regular price $545.00

The WSET® Level 2 Award in Spirits is an intermediate level qualification exploring spirits and liqueurs for those working in the industry or spirits enthusiasts. For individuals wishing to develop their expertise in spirits and liqueurs, this qualification provides comprehensive training. You’ll learn about the production methods and characteristics of the main spirit categories, while also exploring key brands and the use of spirits in cocktails. It is also useful for those who have a general interest in the subject and wish to grow their passion.

This online course is based around a 5-week structured online programme with a recommendation of 6 hours study per week to cover the online activities and read the relevant chapters in the textbook. Regular access and participation in the course online activities is essential for this mode of study.

The course follows a weekly structure, but it allows the student to work ahead or catch up on the activities and forums. There are no set times to log into the course as there are no live chats or webinars.

Once you have registered, you will be provided with the WSET study materials and have access to the online platform. Guidance from the WSET educator will begin at the course ‘start date’ and run thru the 5-week program.

The student can contact the educator any time for the duration of the scheduled course, should they have any questions. Each week includes a series of independent and/or group activities to help students understand the key styles of spirits and how they are made. Students are advised to taste a range of spirits during their studies. A list of recommended tasting samples can be found in the specification. (Samples are not included in the course and supplying them is up to the discretion of the student.) Students can post their tasting notes in the Online Classroom for review by the educator.

Students will require access to a computer (recommended) and/or HTML5 compatible mobile or tablet with the following minimum requirements: Internet Explorer 10, Firefox 25.0, Safari 6, Chrome 30.0 or other HTML5 compatible; web browser with Javascript and cookies** enabled; Adobe Reader XI or equivalent; Internet access (broadband recommended)
