How does AWA cope with Covid-19 measurements?
AWA is a non-government recognized education in a closed place. This means that we can open and organize the planned courses.
"Institutions that offer non-government recognized education such as training and educational activities are not allowed to organize physical education in public places. Offering training and educational activities in closed places is allowed with due observance of the basic measures such as 1.5 meters."

We will never switch to online classes, so every student will get the in class teaching that he or she registered for. Always feel free to contact us directly for any further questions on +31681430165 (Wouter) or +31624645155 (Fransje)
Can I collect my study books before tmy wine course starts?
Yes, as soon as you have enrolled the WSET wine course through our website we will register you as a candidate with the WSET. After this it is possible to come to wine bar Paskamer to take your studypack. Please let us know up front before you come, so we will have your books ready for you. You are by any means not expected to read the book before the course starts.
What is the WSET?
The WSET is the Wine and Spirits Education Trus that operates from London. This the biggest and highest regarded wine education platform in the world. The WSET writes all the course materials that we use and they also make and mark the exams. Have a look here if you want to read more about why we choose to work with the WSET wine courses.
