Craft Beer Course Series

Craft Beer Laboratory Skills Certification

Craft Beer Laboratory Skills Certification

This certification program consists of four classes designed to introduce participants to the basic lab skills needed to thrive in a craft beverage quality assurance (QA)/quality control (QC) laboratory. Participants will gain hands-on laboratory experience conducting the most common analyses used in the industry. The first class in this series, Basic Laboratory Skills, will act as a foundation for the subsequent courses. Though the classes may be taken individually, this first class acts as a foundation for the following courses and will be very helpful for those with little or no laboratory experience. Participants must attend all four courses and complete an assessment in order to receive the certificate.

Each participant will be required to pass the lab safety test prior to participation in any of these four courses. This content and test will be incorporated into course one, Basic Laboratory Skills. Anyone choosing not to take this course prior to attending a subsequent course will be required to arrive 30 minute before the scheduled class time on the first day to fulfill this requirement. Any student that does not meet this requirement will not be allowed to participate.
