The Siebel Institute of Technology continues to operate all web-based courses and programs without any delays or problems. We have temporarily closed campus educational offerings until early August at this time due to the COVID-19 situation.

To support our recent campus WBA students whose education has been impacted, we have immediately offered our well-established web-based educational option to complete this portion of their current studies.

Advanced level

World Brewing Academy

WBA Raw Materials and Wort Production Module (Module 1)

Advanced level Certificate Studies WBA Individual Module

The Raw Materials and Wort Production module provides training in the technology and science of wort creation, giving students a complete understanding of the effects of products and processes on this area of the brewing cycle.
Siebel Institute Doemens

Description

Great beer starts with great raw materials and sound brewhouse practices, and the WBA Raw Materials and Wort Production module provides advanced-level training in the technology and science of wort creation. Each critical factor in wort production, from malting technology to hop usage to wort boiling and cooling, is explained in detail. Students will also learn the analytical techniques involved in assessment of raw materials and wort towards achieving consistency in wort quality.

The WBA Raw Materials and Wort Production module can be taken individually, or as part of the WBA Advanced Brewing Technology, WBA International Diploma in Brewing Technology, or WBA Master Brewer programs.

This module is offered online and on-campus, both with distinctive advantages. The campus option will allow students to participate in vibrant classroom discussions and develop close networks with fellow students. The online option, on the other hand, allows students to advance through the module at their own pace, from the comfort of their office or home, without the need to travel.

If the online option is selected, throughout the duration of the module students are supervised by the instructional staff of the World Brewing Academy, drawing on the talents of some of the most knowledgeable scientists, technologists and brewmasters in the industry. Student progress is actively monitored throughout the program, and students can access instructors via email and chat sessions throughout the duration of the module. The average time spent studying is normally 7-10 hours per week but depends on the individual as well.
