The two-day CSW Exam Prep course will set you up to pass the exam through a series of reviews of key terms, technical details, wine faults, viticulture, enology, wine labels, laws, and the major wine regions of the world, and includes expert-led tastings to bring regional stylistic points to life.

Perfect for the student who wants to make every effort to pass the exam on their first attempt. You will benefit from a structured review as you prepare to become a Certified Specialist of Wine.

Did you know that the CSW certification program was designed to be entirely self-study and that as a result, only ⅓ of CSW students pass the exam on their first attempt if left to their own devices?  Making a fail even more painful is the fact that the Society of Wine Educators charges a resit fee of between $450 to $650 to retake the exam.  Sounds daunting, doesn’t it?

That is why we have created the CSW EXAM PREP course– to help YOU pass the exam. Our course is designed by expert CWE and CSW instructors who know how to prepare you for exam success!

Don’t leave success to chance. Enroll in our CSW Prep Course today!

    I just completed your 4-day CSW course, Brenda was our instructor and did a fantastic job of taking us on a wonderful wine journey around the world. What I loved most was learning the geography and heritage of wine, Old and New World. This is a great preparatory course for the exam. I know what areas I need to focus on prior to taking the exam. The wines we tasted were delicious, great selections and the daily lunch provided was awesome! They have a great caterer. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Cheers!
