Formal education
« on: October 17, 2017, 08:02:57 AM »
    Does anyone on this forum have any experience with, perspectives on or opinions about The Brewing and Distilling Center in Knoxville, TN and their program?
   As a follow on, any other concise certificate level programs that you would recommend? I realize that there are a number of 1, 2 and 4 year programs offered at various colleges and universities, and that every one seems to offer a different certificate or degree. I am looking for accelerated programs of less than 6 months.
   Thanks.

I don't have anything to add about the program you specified but I know there are some shorter programs out there. A small local-ish college here has started offering a much shorter program that is a basic skills class plus an internship. They work with local breweries to get people hands on experience right away. I know several people have made the jump directly into brewing jobs afterwards. I don't think that program would be much use beyond this local area but I'm sure it's not the only one out there like that.
