At the moment (April 18, 2020), we continue to adapt to the stay-at-home-and-stay-safe efforts, with schools, events, and most other functions of daily life now of course at a standstill. It places, though, looks as if we ARE MAKING PROGRESS! Great News, but vigilance is still needed. With this in mind a few notes.
First, New England Wine Academy wants to assure its current students that there will be no disruption to online studies. All existing and scheduled class sessions are taking place. Keep studying!
For any current student with an exam date scheduled on March 28 or June 6, or students enrolling in up-coming Spring classes, exams will be (re)scheduled to the weekend of August 1. If things open up and an earlier date can be scheduled then we will certainly put that in place, but with all of the uncertainty at the moment it is impossible to say for sure what we will be doing until the State of CT allows for people to gather and businesses to re-open. The tasting workshops associated with any of these classes will also be rescheduled as needed and consolidated with the Spring class sessions.
WSET is working to expand offerings for online and webcasting, and you will notice that the online class offerings from NEWA have been expanded over the next several months to include more opportunities to take WSET sessions in both wine and spirits. We will also be posting the 2020/2021 session dates in the very near future, so please stay tuned.
As always, if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to NEWA and we will be happy to discuss. Cheers
