    Need suggestion about be a barista trainer

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi guys,
    Just wondering what to take to become a barista teacher who can teach barista courses? I worked as barista for years now and want this go somewhere other than just barista, I love making coffee so Im thinking why not become a barista trainer, anyone here knows what kinda certificate that I have to get in NSW here?

    Many thanks:)

    A bit out of my area, but I know there used to be a Train the trainer certificate, you would be looking for something along those lines.

    Unfortunately you dont need to be good at making coffee, you just need to be qualified to deliver the course content. You can get a job with a roaster to train their clients and for that you just need to be able to convince them to give you a job!

    Hi Brett

    Im pretty sure this has been the topic of previous discussion, and my view hasnt changed.

    While I agree that a piece of paper is not a guarantee that its recipient will be good at whatever the piece of paper says they are qualified to do, it does to me indicate a level of committment to the field of study. I think this is an advantage in this case, where the opening remarks indicate there is plenty of practical experience.

    Dennis,

    Agreed that there seems to be substance here, when it comes to coffee training there are plenty of people out there who are qualified to deliver the accredited training who I would never buy a coffee from.
