Brewing Course Concept
The course is based on our German and English in-person course, which more than 1200 participants have successfully completed since 1996. The total study time takes about eight to nine hours. From the time of the first login at our e-learning plattform, the participant has 3 weeks in total to work on all eight learning units. In this way, each participant has the opportunity to determine his/her own learning times and speed. At the end of each subunit, the learning progress is revised in the form of a small topic-related test. The tests consist of multiple or single choice questions, drag & drop texts or open questions. The course is successfully completed, when the participant has passed all learning modules.

But it is also suitable to provide a general overview of the complete process and technology of beer brewing. Please be aware that this course is not aimed at home brewers!
