Amsterdam - The Whisky Ambassador (English)

  • Room2Learn 13 Utrechtsedwarsstraat 1017 WB Amsterdam Netherlands (map)

BIIAB Accredited training module - The Whisky Ambassador

(This course will be delivered in English)

The Whisky Ambassador programme is the original accredited training course about whisky. Having been established for a number of years, it is now being delivered globally. It is a fun and interactive training programme designed specifically for the Licensed Trade, giving staff the knowledge, skills and confidence to talk to customers about Scotland’s national drink. This leads to better customer experience and increased sales. 

To meet the demand for this course in the Netherlands we offer this course in English and Dutch. So for all those people who are more comfortable in English than in Dutch, or deliberatelly want to follow the course in English this is now possible. 

The programme will be delivered in venues everywhere in the Netherlands. Although the English course will be delivered a little less often. Please refer to our "upcoming courses and training" page to find a course near you and book your seat.
