The Italian Wine Educator program welcomes VIA Italian Wine Ambassadors with rich wine educational experiences and is open to those professionals who hope to expand their expertise into education.
As a prerequisite, all educator candidates must have obtained Italian Wine Ambassador certification prior to participating in the program.
The course costs €500 and includes access to the educator portal, online readings, quizzes, webinar and final assessment. It also covers the first years subscription for hosting courses. In order to continue following the first year educators are invited to renew their status with a small fee. Unlike other institutions VIA certify the educator rather than the school, allowing complete flexibilty as to when and where courses are held.
If you belong to any of the following groups, you’re be exempted from attending the Italian Wine Educator program and can request to become an Italian Wine Educator automatically:
• Hold the Italian Wine Expert title; • Hold the Italian Wine Ambassador title and have taught WSET Level 3 Course or higher level course for at least 2 years;
Though exempt from the assessment, it is highly recommended for all of those who qualify for exemption to audit and complete the educator programme
