In addition to tutor-led WSET courses available through the WSET global campus, the American Wine School uniquely offers Virtual Classroom courses for those wishing to take WSET certification classes online. These online WSET courses differ from WSET Global online courses in that the Virtual Classroom courses are instructor led by the American Wine School with set class dates and times. Weekly classes are recorded for those who might miss a session. At home tasting activities are also provided to familiarize students with a systemic approach to tasting.  When the course is over, students arrange with American Wine School, an Approved Program Provider, to take the exam in person at an American Wine School location: Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, or Pittsburgh.

COVID-19 UPDATE: As of June 1, 2020 WSET will conduct Level 1 Wine and Level 2 Wine exam ONLINE. While in-person exams are still available, WSET will now offer online exams making it possible to take the exams from the comfort of your own home. RI_CANDIDATE_INFORMATION_3.0
