ALCE in Bologna has signed an agreement with the leading Italian association of professional sommeliers - AIS.
From January 2016, ALCE will be the first Italian language school to organize and deliver professional courses to obtain the Sommelier DiplomaÂ.
The courses provide modern sommelier training and use teaching methods adapted to constant evolution in the international world of wine tasting.
To obtain the diploma or certificate of sommelier, students must progress through a course divided into three levels. International candidates must pass an exam to move from one level to the next and must pass the final exam to become an officially certified sommelier.
The full course of three levels plus final examination lasts 16 weeks. It is opened to a maximum of 15 candidates. ALCE has scheduled three starting dates: 1 February (Winter session), 30 May (Spring session) and 5 September (Autumn session).
