Becoming an Authorised SCAE Trainer (AST) will give you the unique opportunity to teach the Coffee Diploma System curriculum at your own coffee training school or academy. We’ll provide you with all the necessary training on our Authorised SCAE Trainer course, as well as the curriculum itself and our exclusive AST Handbook to help guide you along the way.
Authorised SCAE Trainers will have achieved a certain level of qualification already within the Coffee Diploma System, but with your completed AST training, you’ll be able to start teaching your own classes, with SCAE supporting you throughout, and providing the necessary certification.
If you wish to attend an Authorised SCAE Trainer course, you must:
Be a SCAE member (Professional Individual, Company or Secondary);
Have achieved Intermediate and Professional level in the category you wish to teach;
Complete the Authorised SCAE Trainer Application Form;
Have achieved Intermediate and Professional level in the category you wish to teach. SCAE requires a three-month gap between taking and passing an Intermediate level module and taking the Professional level of the same module. There is also a three-month gap required between passing the Professional level and following the AST course.
Please note that applications will not be processed unless you provide your SCAE membership number and Coffee Diploma System certificate details on the Authorised SCAE Trainer Application Form.
