Please note that all our training courses, manuals, examinations and correspondence are delivered in English.
Please note: Where English is not the students’ first language, special provisions may be made for written exams. The written exam is simply designed to test understanding of the theory that has been taught on the course, and this can be done verbally. We are mostly concerned with your ability to work behind a bar and students will not be penalised for their reading or writing abilities!
