When is the Professional Chocolatier Program offered during the year?
We offer sessions of the program starting in January, March and August each year.
Is there a restriction on the number of students you take each session?
Even though the curriculum is online, we do cut off registrations when we reach the maximum number of students our instructor and online tutor feel they have adequate time to be able to work with properly.
TO ENSURE A SEAT IN THE PROGRAM, you should register with your payment at least two weeks before the program start date. After that, check the program date above to see if the current session is still open. When the program is full, we change the program date to the future session.
Chocolate aficionados and home chocolate artisans!
If you want to become an expert in chocolate work, but are not interested in starting a business, we offer an alternative: Chocolate Technique and Flavor Stream within the Professional Chocolatier 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. Simply register for the Professional Chocolatier Program (not Plus with Business Plan) and then opt for this stream by completing only the required assignments during the program.
