The Certified Wine Expert® training program is self-paced and utilizes a modern learning management system. We've implemented a number of educational methods and devices in order to maximize your learning and to help you get certified online!
Your self-paced wine training program has four (4) modules to guide you through all course objectives in the Certified Wine Expert program. While some of the courses build upon information presented in prior lessons - if you want to read ahead and are ready for the next lesson - you are free to do so. Course modules offer students the ability to test retention of course materials and prepare for the Certification Exam through online study tools and may receive instructor feedback through Written Assignments.

Just like in a regular classroom, all of your lessons, instructions and course assignments are posted to the Blackboard. The online Blackboard is where you will find your study tools, vocabulary, practice quizzes and more. This is also where you will take your Certification Exam and submit completed written assignments to the instructor. You will also have access to downloadable templates customized for each of your lessons to walk you through your written assignments step-by-step. The Blackboard is always online – ready for you 24/7; any time you want to sign-in for class or feel the urge to study.
For each module, students are strongly encouraged to complete each of the following course work steps as instructed:
At least once per week it is advisable to review the Vocabulary Flash Cards, reviewing these will assist you in understanding the core curriculum and develop your use of wine vocabulary in your written assignments and in your everyday conversations about wine.
Upon successful completion of all course requirements for this Program and passing the Certification Exam, graduates will be awarded a certificate which they can download online and a Certified Wine Expert credential card customized with their name and graduating class date will be mailed to them. There are no student body fees, parking permits or anything else to get in the way of your learning and getting your Certified Wine Expert credential. (Read more about the Certification Exam)
