Prepare and Serve Espresso Coffee is a nationally endorsed unit of competency and is delivered in up to five stages. Coffee makers with experience on commercial espresso machines may be eligible for credits through the recognition of prior learning process. If this applies to you, please contact the Coffee Academy to discuss which stages you need to complete.
To complete this course you must first enrol into ABC of Espresso Making and then Advanced Espresso. Once completed, you can enrol into Prepare and serve espresso coffee by contacting William Angliss Institute.

The stages you must complete are:
1. ABC of Espresso Making
2. Advanced Espresso
3. Practice Sessions: Students should do at least one practice session after attending the courses and a further session prior to commencing work experience. This is optional if you work in an espresso making establishment e.g. café.
4. Theory, Assignment and Work Experience: This component of the course is completed away from the campus and in your own time. Upon enrolment, you will receive an assessment booklet to complete. This must be submitted at your final assessment. Students will need to complete up to 20 hours of work experience and maintain a detailed log book. Students can make their own arrangements for work experience but these must be approved by the trainer.
5. Final Assessment: When all course work, theory and practice are finished, students can arrange a time for a final practical assessment. All course work must be handed in at this time and students must successfully complete a range of espresso making tasks in a set time.
