Looking to do an Accredited course?

From the 1st of January 2015, you need to have a USI!

CREMA COFFEE ACADEMY

Training at the Garage has always been our priority. We believe that you hold our reputation in your hands. The training is not only about getting you more business or getting you that job, but for us, it is also an exercise in self preservation. We have been training for over 12 years and in 2012, we decided to have our training fully accredited, allowing our clients to not only obtain quality barista training but to also be able to obtain the necessary certificate to back it up. Our courses are all run at our Newcastle store.

WHAT MAKES US BETTER

Unlike a lot of barista courses, we provide you with a small classroom size of only 6 students. Each student has their own group head and steam wand. This small class size and exclusive equipment means that each student obtains good attention and instruction from our certified trainer and the exclusive equipment means there is plenty of opportunity to make many beverages. We dont rush you through either. You will have ample time to learn and understand everything. As we are also a local roaster, you will get to see how the roasting of coffee is carried out. Giving you a greater overall understanding of coffee.

COFFEE TRAINING FOR HOME

Do you want to do the course but you don’t need the certificate?

Why not do our Espresso Essentials Course. It is run to the same standard as the Accredited training, the main difference is that you just don’t go through the certification process.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACCREDITED AND NON ACCREDITED TRAINING

Accredited Training is training which provides a person with a nationally recognised qualification on completion. It is sometimes referred to as Nationally Recognised Training and has been developed based on the National Training Package for the given industry or where a Training Package does not exist and a course has been accredited for national recognition.

What is the difference between an accredited (nationally recognised) course and a non-accredited course?

By undertaking a nationally recognised course, participants learn in accordance with nationally agreed industry standards. On successful completion of the course, participants receive a qualification (or statement of attainment if doing part of the course).

The qualification is recognised in every state of Australia (and New Zealand).

Participants are required to complete an assessment for all nationally recognised courses.

Non-accredited courses do not carry national recognition, however they carry several advantages if gaining a qualification is not a key reason for the training.

  • The course can be built around a client’s specific training needs
  • There is no assessment requirement

Are you looking to work in a café? – Our 5.5hr  fully accredited class is the one you want – this class will give you 2 nationally recognised certificates – Use hygienic practices for food safety & Prepare and serve espresso coffee. At the completion of this class you will know how to make the 8 basic beverages from the espresso menu and correctly use and clean down the equipment.

Are you wanting to make great coffee at home? – Our 3hr Espresso Essentials class is the one you want – this class will show you how to drop the perfect shot every time, get your milk silky smooth and how to best clean and maintain your equipment.

Our courses are all run at our Newcastle store.

Use hygienic practices for food safety (SITXFSA101) is a pre-requisite for the Prepare and serve espresso coffee unit. If you have successfully completed this unit through other training at school or TAFE and can provide a copy of the original certificate or transcript please contact our trainer Jenine to discuss other training options to complete just the coffee unit with us.

If you have the practical experience of working in a café preparing food and beverages but don’t have the Certificate we are able to offer Recognition of Prior Learning – (RPL) is an assessment process which makes use of evidence of a learner’s previous non – certificated achievements to demonstrate competence or achievement within a unit or qualification. Contact our trainer to arrange this assessment.

We keep our classes small with a maximum of 6 students.

Yes, each student has their own group head, steam arm and grinder to use during the class so there is no waiting and you have plenty of practice time on the machine.

You need a skill and the right certificate to prove to café owners that you have been trained by properly accredited trainers. You get both of these with our courses.
