Barista Course FAQs

Is this course accredited?

This course is non-accredited and rather a skills course.

Will I get to use the machines?

Yes! We strongly believe practical learning is the best learning. You will be making coffees on the machines after a brief theory introduction.

Will we learn Latte Art?

You will learn a bit of Latte Art, but it is not a huge focus. Ask the trainer at the start of the course if that interests you.

Your booking is confirmed once we receive full payment of course fees. Unfortunately there are rare occasions where the course will sell out prior to you finalising payment.  In this situation a member of our customer service team will get in contact to organise an alternate training date.

What if I have trouble with written/spoken english?

Most courses will permit a student to bring a friend to interpret for them during training. If you do need assistance, we ask that you contact first before booking your course so we can advise if there are any restrictions. For example, Forklift training requires students to complete all assessments in English.

If the course permits, you may bring a friend along to the course or, alternatively, you can phone the National Translation service to book an interpreter. Visit the Immigration website for more information about help with translating.
