Do you love chocolate?

Of course you do! Did you ever think it was possible to enjoy chocolate more, or even learn how to make it yourself? We're here to help you take your chocolate knowledge and skills to the next level.

Within each of our Professional Programs, we have created alternative streams for students who want to take their passion further, but are not thinking of starting a business. Each of our 100% online, chef led programs are a fun exploration of the world of chocolate.

Below are the descriptions of our 3 core programs and the alternate streams for chocolate hobbyists, as well as instructions for how to register.

You may be wondering, how do we teach chocolate making online? We’ve got answers to all of your questions.

Professional Chocolatier Program

This part-time, three month, 100% online program in chocolate techniques, led by both our instructor and our experienced online tutor, prepares you to understand and practice all the skills you need to make your own fine chocolate bonbons, confections and bars. We begin with an in-depth understanding of chocolate and the chemistry behind successfully working with chocolate, then move from that foundation into hands on practice, and lots of recipe development.

How it works: Simply register for the regular Professional Chocolatier Program (not Plus with Business Plan) and then opt for the: Chocolate Technique and Flavor Stream during the program. You'll get the same intensive learning experience, but will not be required to complete the last two business-focused assignments. You'll spend that time in additional study, recipe development and practice.

There's no difference in the depth and quality of the education you receive, whichever way you decide to go. Students completing this stream will receive a Certificate of Achievement in Chocolate Technique.

Chocolate Making from the Bean Program

This part-time, two month, 100% online program, led by both our instructor and our experienced online tutor, starts with a simple idea: chocolate grows on trees. We begin with learning how cacao trees are grown; how the fruit of those trees are harvested and how the beans processed by the chocolate maker. We discuss sourcing beans, creating a successful chocolate flavor profile and making dried cacao beans into pure chocolate - even at home.

How it works: Simply register for the regular Chocolate Making from the Bean Program (not Plus with Business Plan) and then opt for the: Cacao to Chocolate Stream during the program. You'll get the same intensive learning experience, but will only be required to complete the Tasting Assignments not the more business oriented Graded Forums.

There's no difference in the depth and quality of the education you receive, whichever way you decide to go. Students completing this stream will receive a Certificate of Achievement in Cacao to Chocolate.
