Distance Learning WSET Courses

All of our WSET course offerings are now available for distance learning. Distance learning is a good option for budget-conscious students, as well as for those living outside the Philadelphia area. Our distance learning students receive all the same course materials as our in-class students. They often receive supplementary information (such as PowerPoints) via email, and they are welcome to attend review sessions and practice exams with our in-class students.
