WSET to launch Diploma course in South Africa
The UK based Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) has announced it will launch the Level 4 Diploma Online Distance Learning Programme in South Africa in September.
The course is based around a two-year online programme, requiring 10 hours of study per week, but is flexible, with educators traveling to Cape Town, South Africa, for scheduled fave-to-face tastings and exams.
The Diploma level certification is recommended for those in wine-buying positions and in order to take the course the Level 3 certification must already be completed.
The course will cost £2,130, with additional local tastings which are charged separately, however attendance at these will not be a requirement of the course programme.
