SCA - Barista Skills Professional

Our 23-hour long course including multiple exams and Steve’s famous Voyager lunch.

Designed to test advanced skills and detailed knowledge of the science behind processes used and expected from a professional barista (for example, from someone working as a barista for 12 months or more, with some management responsibilities). Successful candidates should have a detailed understanding of their ingredients and of the techniques available to maximise the quality of the drinks made.

You should be able to manage the skills of others to produce quality drinks and provide excellent customer service. You should also be able to maintain your equipment to ensure consistent quality.

Introduction to Coffee, Barista Foundation, and Intermediate Brewing are recommended (but not mandatory) pre-requisite modules. Holding the Intermediate Barista Certification is a mandatory requirement. All knowledge and skill from these modules will be assumed as being held and may be tested through the practical and/or written assessments.

£595 + VAT (+ £155 optional certification fee for SCA members/£245 for non-members)
