You can now take a Beer Certification program at Fanshawe College.
Bruce Smith is with the Continuing Education Department at the College, he says there are three levels of the program.
The first level is being offered this September 30th at the main campus, and runs until October 21st.
This is the first time Fanshawe has gone down this path, and Smith says it’s complimentary to other programs, in the hospitality area.
Smith says this new program is in collaboration with the outside company, Prud’homme Beer.
Smith says the designer of the course Roger Mittag is from the Toronto area, and his instructors will travel to London to teach the course.
He tells the X the first level is more of a personal interest course, however it gets more into expertise by the third course learning about the background, origins and tasting of different beer.
Smith says tuition is $376, and is about 3 hours a night throughout the course period.
Smith adds they have about 10 students registered so far, and will take up to about 20.
The course will take last minute registrations as well.
