Training Methods, Duration & Assessment

All materials are available on-line for a 3 month period after registration. Certification is achieved on successful completion of 3 x 20min multi-choice tests taken on-line – 60% is set as the pass mark for the tests. The candidate can repeat the tests up to 10 times. Questions are randomized and taken from a large bank of questions so a different test comes up each time. On successful completion of tests candidates will gain a certificate from the Hibernian Brewing School.
