Pre-requisites are required to enter the CAPS Certification Program. Courses such as WSET Advanced (Level 3) Certificate or ISG Wine Fundamentals Level 2 or successful completion of the CMS Certified level exams are considered as appropriate pre-requisites.
Also accepted are Wines 1 and 2 from George Brown College and Sensory 1 and 2 from Niagara College.
Other programs are accepted based on a review of the course description, content and evaluation criteria.
For those who have not taken the formal prerequisites, the other option for entry is to sit a challenge exam; however, few opt for this.
