Since there are no set class dates, studying online offers candidates the flexibility to fit their studies around their commitments and lifestyle. Your WSET program will work to keep you moving through the program, but you can work on your own as your schedule allows. In addition, the American Wine School offer access to online videos, online presentations, recorded classes, and live tasting days when you are in Chicago sitting an exam.
Please note exams are NOT given online. Each Unit has specific exam dates. Once you sign up for the course, you will automatically be signed up for the exam date associated with the course. If you have questions or are in need of more information, please email email@example.com
While there are no set class dates for the online classes (candidates are free to make their own study schedule), there are set exam dates and live classes and/or tasting classes on exam days.
