Do the prerequisite food-handling course in your own time. Use Hygienic Practices For Food Safety is a prerequisite for this class – if you don’t already have this unit (or its equivalent) you will receive a workbook and manual to complete before the day of the Barista class. Your trainer will check your workbook during the course of the day.

It’s all about the coffee. Whether you’re after a job in a cafe or simply searching for espresso excellence, this course is for you. We have developed this course to not only tick the boxes required to get the qualification – trainer John Ellis is also passionate about the quality of the coffee you make.
