Sydney Wine Academy lands with a splash

TAFE NSW — Northern Sydney Institute — Ryde College has launched a specialist wine academy. The Sydney Wine Academy will deliver both local and international wine courses for those in the wine trade and keen amateurs.

Whilst the Academy incorporates the successful Sommeliers Certificate and Wine Studies Courses currently offered at Ryde College, the new operation will now deliver courses from the internationally recognised, London-based, Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET®).

From late February 2008 the Sydney Wine Academy will offer 3 levels of WSET® courses: Level 1 Foundation Certificate in Wines, Level 2 Intermediate Certificate in Wine and Spirit, and the Level 3 Advanced Certificate in Wine and Spirits.

“Being an approved program provider of WSET® courses complements our nationally-endorsed Australian wine courses and enables the Sydney Wine Academy to teach people about every aspect of wine, from novices to experts,” comments leading wine educator and Course Director, Clive Hartley.

“Delivered by a team of lecturers with Australian and international experience, the courses range from a short 6 hours to a one year Sommelier Certificate, offering something for everyone interested in wine.”

Enrol now as courses are filling fast!
