Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Classes
The WSET is England's Wine & Spirit Education Trust. Since 1969 it has been affiliated with the Institute of Masters of Wine in educating the wine trade as well as consumers seeking a very thorough wine education.
We are a Registered Centre and an Approved Programme Provider for the WSET Intermediate Course, Advanced Course, and Diploma Courses in wines and spirits. To date we have nad more than 600 students pass their challenging WSET exams to earn these credentials.
We offer classes, home study programs and testing and assessment.

New! WSET Level 1 Foundation Course
This is a fun, basic three-week introductory course designed for those with no prior wine knowledge.
WSET Level 2 Award Intermediate Course
No prior wine knowledge is required for the Intermediate Course.
WSET Level 3 Award Advanced Course
The Advanced Course is for people with a significant amount of prior wine knowledge. In the U.K. the Intermediate Level 2 Award is a pre-requisite for this course, but we will admit well-prepared people with no prior WSET experience.
WSET Diploma Course
The Diploma course is very challenging. It is the last step before trying to become a Master of Wine. The Advanced Level 3 Award is a pre-requisite for the WSET Diploma.
Home Study WSET Courses
All of our WSET course offerings are now available for home study. Home study is a good option for budget-conscious students, as well as for those living outside the Philadelphia area. Our home study students receive all the same course materials as our in-class students. They often receive supplementary information (such as PowerPoints) via email, and they are welcome to attend review sessions and practice exams with our in-class students.
