The entire course was superbly delivered and excellent in design, engagement elements, and content. I couldn’t have asked for a better session!
I had an intense but wonderful weekend. I feel like everyone at the Sake Sommelier Association really went out of their way to make the course interesting for me. Even as a WSET 3 certificate holder, I feel that the course enriched me in many ways. I appreciated in particular was how close to the actual culture of sake it felt in comparison. I hope I will be able to create the same feeling for my students in the future.
While I have taken sake courses before, this one featured new information that I had never learned, including the history of sake, specifics about the brewing process, specialty styles and recommended sake serving information. After the course, I felt energized to tell friends and family about the sake information I learned and to help others enjoy sake.
The Educators at Sake Sommelier Association are not only truly passionate about sake education but also well-rounded professionals willing to transmit their broad and rich experience to their students. Sake and its importance in the Japanese Culture is at the heart of the Sake Sommelier Association curriculum. This is definitely the right place to start your sake learning journey, be it to quench your curiosity or to become a Certified Sake Sommelier!
Despite taking the course online, the instructors managed to make me feel like I was really in the classroom with them learning everything I need to know about sake. In each module and workshop of the course, the passion and dedication they have and all their professionalism was noticed.
The Certified Sake Sommelier online course is the best online professional course that I have ever attended. The teachers are well prepared and have a passion for sake. Classes are insightful and very informative. I strongly believe that this course is a must for people
wanting to pursue a career in the beverage industry.
