Explanatory Note: (13 May 2017)

Payment Scheme

Some of our students live in regions that are economically struggling, and as we strive to educate and train potential wine professionals so that they can enter a different industry, or follow their dream, we have decided to institute a special Payment Scheme, to assist them. So, if any student is not able to pay the full sum of the course fee, registration costs and exam costs (‘the total costs’) at registration we can arrange a separate payment schedule, provided the student can convince us that he/she is indeed unable to pay the full sum when he/she registers.

That scheme works like this:

  • when the student registers he/she will be allowed to pay only 60% of the total costs.
  • The outstanding balance has to be paid within 6 months of registration.
  • If that outstanding balance is not paid within that 6 months period, the student will not be allowed access to her/his course until that amount has been paid.
  • No interest will be charged on this outstanding balance if it is paid within that 6 months period. However, if that payment is late an interest amount of 2% pa will be levied against that outstanding amount until the payment is made.

Explanatory Note (24 Jan 2016)

We have decided that we will again not increase course fees (the last increase, in November 2013, was actually not an increase, but adding on local taxes).

Explanatory Note (9 November 2015) Credit Card Payments:
At the request of some students who have difficulties to arrange for a bank transfer (Swift- the normal manner in which students usually pay our fees) in their particular country, we have decided to trial a credit card payment system, at least for a few months, for a selection of our more popular courses.

You must click on ‘Credit or Debit Card Payments’ on the Index, then select the course you wish to register for. There you will see that the amount shown includes various items. The amount shown is therefore not the normal amount shown in our Course Fees list below, but a total of:

  • the actual course fee,olya sanakoev

  • the registration costs (currently €75)

  • the exam fees (currently €35 per module)

  • the normal 3% surcharge for using a credit card.

  • It does NOT include the costs of the Wine DVD or the wine Sommelier (and the shipping costs involved). If you decide to order these two items we have created a separate item in the “Credit and Debit Card Payments” section where you can purchase the two, together with the shipping costs.

  • You will note that we have listed only the more popular courses, but if you see that the course you wish to register for is not on the list please send us an email and we’ll new clones1arrange for it to be included so that you can pay with your credit card.

  • You can see therefore you save the 3% credit card surcharge if you pay with the ordinary SWIFT bank transfer.

  • As we are not yet experienced with this credit card system you may encounter some small problems, if so contact us immediately explaining what the problem is and we will sort it out.

Introduction

  • There is a detailed list of all course fees on the website.

  • The course fee covers all the costs of the course, except for extra items such as field trips etc. (see the specific course description on the website for more clarity on this)

  • There is a separate registration cost of €75

  • Swift Payments (Bank Transfers)
    Procedure:

    • Instruct your bank to pay the course fee, and course registration costs of €75, into our bank: BNP Paribas Fortis, IBAN:BE96 0017 8088 1705, and BIC (Swift) code: GEBABEBB, (mentioning your name and the course name).

    • All quoted fees include only such items or actions as are set out in each Course’s description on this website.

    • The fees quoted for the Long and Professional courses refer only to e-learning courses and do not include any practicums or workshops unless so specified as such in the Course Description. Should such a course be offered face-to-face the course fee will be made available at that time. This is due to the fact that such f2f costs can differ, depending on locations etc.
