THE BEV SPECIALIST CERTIFICATE
$99, ONLINE, SELF STUDY PROGRAM

Do you know someone who wants to work in the wine/spirits/hospitality industry but they just don't know where to start? All of the certifications and programs out there can be a bit intimidating when you first start out. The Bev Specialist Certificate is a wonderful place to start.

The Hospitality/Beverage Specialist Certificate (HBSC) is an entry-level, beverage knowledge program designed to fulfill the needs of the hospitality and culinary industries and their employees. The Beverage Specialist Certificate can also be used as an entry-level course for those planning to pursue higher levels of wine, beer, or spirits certification.

The HBSC provides a broad base of knowledge, covering all commercially relevant beverages, not just wine or spirits. The program’s content covers: coffee, tea, beer, sake, cider, perry, wine, and spirits. Details about sensory evaluation, tasting notes, and service standards for each beverage type are included as well as a chapter on the responsible service of beverage alcohol.
