Certification qualification

I’m considering the Core Wine Course (Levels 1-3) with the certification and eventually look into becoming a Sommelier. Is this course and certification equivalent to the pre-qualification necessary if I wanted to go for the Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers? Their site states before you can take the Certified Sommelier exam you must complete their Introductory Course and Exam. I am just trying to figure out if I’d have to go through their Intro course and exam in addition to completing the course you offer.

Any information on what the certification means in terms of moving forward as a Sommelier would be helpful.

Thanks

Leah,

You don’t have to go through the Court to become a certified sommelier. They are one of a number of agencies that certify sommeliers. Our agency (NWS, which is in California) certifies up to Level V, the same as the Court (aka Master Somm). Some people do go through both, but most end up taking our programs instead.

  • Hi Keith – thanks for that clarification. So if I wanted to become a certified sommelier through NWS, what would be the next step after taking the Core Course?

  • The Advanced Course, which is 4 semesters, and will bring you up to a Level IV Somm.
