The WBA Concise Course in Brewing Technology covers a similar range of topics as those presented in our advanced-level programs, but at a depth which allows those with only moderate understanding of brewing science and technology to participate in the course. This is an ideal course for those considering entry into the brewing industry, as well as those pursuing a wider knowledge of the business in order to improve their skills and advance in their brewing careers. The course also offers the best way to prepare for our advanced-level programs should you decide to take them at a later date.
This course is offered online and on-campus, both with distinctive advantages. The on-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 course at their own pace, from the comfort of their office or home, without the need to travel.
If the online option is selected, students will be supervised by the instructional staff of the World Brewing Academy, and will be actively monitored throughout the course. Students can also 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.
