I would like to know when my next opportunity would be to take the non-accelerated Foundation and Intermediate courses in tandem. These classes would meet every Sunday, correct? At what point would I be able to sign up for those courses?
I’m also curious about the Professional Certification from the National Wine School. Can you give me a little information on how exactly that works? Do I earn the certification directly from my classes, here? Or are there other steps involved?
Thank you very much.

Thank you for your interest in our programs. Our next regular semester will begin in September. We are working on hammering out the exact dates now, and expect to post them in a couple of weeks.
The Certification is earned through attending classes at the Wine School and successfully completing a combination of a blind taste test and written examinations. It sounds like you are interested in the Core program, which covers Levels 1-3. You an earn additional certifications, culminating in a Diploma, by taking four Advanced courses and completing a thesis. It usually takes about two years to complete the entire program.
Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you.
