The Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET) has launched their Raising Spirits campaign, supporting education in the drinks industry during the COVID-19 crisis. WSET will be covering the cost of the Level I Award in Spirits for at least 5,000 members of the hospitality industry in the US, aiming to boost the morale of restaurant and bar workers who have found themselves unemployed over the last few months.
The four-week online course is an introduction to spirits taught by accredited WSET educators and concludes with an online exam. Members of the hospitality trade interested in participating can register here by June 1, 2020; spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
For those who would like to support this initiative, WSET has openings for corporate patrons. Contact [email protected] by June 1, 2020 to help.
