Since 2016, the Cider Institute has set the industry standard for cider production education. Our courses are taught by leading scholars and practitioners to keep you up-to-date on market trends and key skills. Due to the COVID-19 situation impacting communities and gatherings around the world, the CINA and our training providers are pivoting to online education for our flagship course, Cider & Perry Production - A Foundation. This is an unique opportunity to learn directly from experts in fermentation research and cider industry leaders in a 15-week modular learning approach, plus one week for a Certification Exam.

Cider & Perry Production - A Foundation provides an in-depth introduction to cider and perry production. Participants will gain an understanding of cider and perry, acquire the key skills and knowledge necessary to make quality products, and network with peers and cider experts. Upon successful completion of the course and qualification exam, participants will receive the Foundation Certificate in Cider & Perry Production; a pre-requisite for advanced-level courses.

Academic instructors from Cornell University, Brock University, Washington State University, and Virginia Tech will introduce you to the fundamentals of cider making as well as the history and traditions behind the modern cider and perry industry. World-renowned cider makers and consultants will lead live discussions about the application of production knowledge to a career in the cider industry.
