WSET Level 1 qualification courses in wines or spirits are accessible without pre-requisites.
WSET Level 2 qualification in wines or spirits requires basic tasting skills and knowledge of these products. Level 1 is therefore strongly recommended but not compulsory to register.
The WSET Level 3 in wines qualification is accessible directly after the WSET Level 2 in wines or equivalent level. You can contact our team to check the equivalences.
The French Wine Scholar training requires a level of knowledge equivalent to the WSET Level 2 certification in wines. You can contact our team to check the equivalences.
Yes, our WSET Level 1 in Spirits or Level 1 in Wines courses are ideal for beginners professionals or amateurs.
The courses delivered at WiSP are not preparing for a specific job. They’re better defined as “product” courses. That is to say, they give a thorough knowledge and understanding of a product (wines or spirits) and its industry. All positions in the wine and spirits industry requires product knowledge and understanding and are potentially concerned by our certifications.
Our classrooms can accommodate up to 20 people depending on the venue used.
All our courses offer the possibility of resiting the final examination in the event of failure. There is no maximum number of attempts. You want to know the dates of the next resit sessions, leave us a message here.
