The common need for so-called beginners is not just “I want to drink” but “I want to drink after knowing”.
As if to prove this, Sake seminars are frequently held all over the world.
However, not many people have the skills of a proper lecturer.
“International Sake Lecturer” is a sake instructor who has not only knowledge of sake but also the skill of “teaching”.
The International Sake Lecturer workshop offers practical programs to improve these four skills.
International Sake Lecturer have the right to certify “Sake Navigator” qualifications to the participants of the seminars they sponsor.
“Sake navigator” is a qualification that is positioned as an “introduction qualification” for the food and beverage industry or a “consumer qualification” for enjoying sake.
A “Navigator Certificate” will be given to the certified person, which will motivate the students to participate in the seminar.
* NPO FBO enrollment procedures (submission of enrollment application, payment of enrollment fee annual membership fee (including registration fee for official and certified qualification year), procedure for next year annual membership fee account transfer) are required.
