5 reviews for WSET Level 3 Tampa, Florida

    Michael P.:

    The additional Exam Preparation Addendum offered by the NVWA’s Online Study Resource provides a wonderful guided study schedule to follow. Printed worksheets provide needed practice on the short answers and there are further study addendums on tasting and food and wine pairings that were really helpful. You can also submit your own tasting notes for evaluation and have an open chat session! I highly recommend the investment, especially for an individual studying on their own.
    As our company evaluates talent for hiring as well as internal promotion and development, WSET certifications give us an outside objective evaluation of wine and spirits knowledge across all categories. As an educator, what I like best about the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) programing is the progressive steps. With some knowledge, one can start at Level 2, be challenged by level 3 and work toward the professional diploma certification at level 4. Napa Valley Wine Academy provides the industry and enthusiast with quality support for those seeking additional study materials and opportunities to attain WSET certifications.
    It is in sincere appreciation for the work you and your staff do to promote wine education and professionalism in our industry!
    Thank you!

    Lori:

    I took the WSET Level 3 class to obtain a better understanding of the world of wine. When my father started a custom crush winery a few years back and asked for some help, I knew I had to gain some general knowledge of how the entire process works. After passing the WSET Level 2, and completing Level 3 a week ago, I certainly have a much better grasp on the important aspects of all things wine, from the vineyard right down to the tasting of different varietals. The class was both fun and informative. Christian and Michelle were wonderful teachers who have a passion for their subject and really wanted every student to reach their potential and goals. Thank you so much! I may be addicted and be back for more!

    This is an fantastic experience!!! Our instructor Catherine was very knowledgeable and taught the course with humor and enthusiasm. There is a lot of information that we studied for months in advance and the in-person classes beautifully pulled everything together and did a great job preparing us for the certification test. The location at the Epicurean Hotel Theater was elegant, comfortable and spacious. Finally there was the wine tasting. Yum!! Learned SO much in 5 days. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who wants in-depth learning about wine.

    Vanessa Soskind:

    I recently took the WSET Level 3 class in Tampa. The amount of material was overwhelming at first but our instructor, Catherine, made it all seem doable. She had tremendous energy and a great sense of humor, which kept us going through the 5 days of lecture. She broke down the material into logical segments, stressed all the important points (many of which were on the exam) and passed along lots of ideas on how to answer the questions and perform the tastings. Catherine quizzed us constantly, which was great preparation for the exam and kept us awake and on our toes. And she had such a positive and supportive attitude throughout. This was a wonderful experience. I feel that I have learned and accomplished a tremendous amount. I highly recommend this course and, in particular, this instructor to anyone with a passion for wine who wants to increase their knowledge.
