For RSA and RCG, practical skills are assessed in-class through role-plays. Knowledge is tested by written questioning completed in class. From January 1, 2017, if you are booking a package with coffee included, there is online learning involved with your coffee course. This will take 1-2 hours to complete and must be done prior to your class. No Statement of Attainment for coffee will be awarded unless the 76 multiple choice questions are successfully completed. Login details will be provided in your confirmation email.
