Applications are now open for the Petainer Beer Certification scholarships.
Petainer has partnered with The Pink Boots Society â€“ a non-profit organisation created to assist, inspire and encourage women in the beer industry â€“ to offer two Cicerone Level 1 and one Cicerone Level 2 scholarships, in both English and Spanish.
The Certified Beer Server exam allows individuals to quickly demonstrate that they possess a professional body of knowledge and essential tasting skills related to beer. Those who obtain the Cicerone Certification will be able to display the â€œCertified CiceroneÂ®â€ logo on their card and correspondence. They will also get listed in the Pink Boots Certification Directory to help them enhance their career prospects and business opportunities.
â€œâ€¦I was already in a position where I was designing beers and managing fermentations using my existing technical knowledge, but I still wanted to keep improving. By offering a scholarship, Pink Boots Society allowed me to do just thatâ€Irena Wise @yuenglingbeer and Head Brewer @wyndridgefarm and Women in Brewing Scholarship Program Recipient.
