Every candidate for Sommeliers Academy courses without prior or recognised qualifications must seat the Orientation Assessment Examination, unless they register for our entry level courses. This will allow us to guide you towards the most appropriate training level.
Assessment Module One is a variable set of 100 Questions to be answered over one hour. It is a prerequisite for Wine Ambassador and Wine Service Advanced.
Assessment Module Two consists of a short essay (30 min) and a tasting to identify, with description, of one beverage (15 minutes).
Both assessment modules must be undertaken as a prerequisite to register for SASA, CFPPA and ASI qualifications unless one can justify validated prior certification.
