Brewing & Distilling Qualifications

Qualifications and skill standards for brewing and distilling are being reviewed and developed as part of a national project, funded by the Australian Department of Education and Training.

In recent years, the increase in popularity of artisanal beer, cider, distilled spirits and other beverages and foods has exposed gaps in national qualifications. The Artisanal Food and Beverage Project is reviewing the skills and knowledge needed in these industries, identifying and aiming to fill gaps.

The first draft of the proposed qualifications has now been released online and consultation workshops and webinars have been scheduled to gather feedback. Skills Impact are keen to know whether these properly describe the job roles and skills of brewers and distillers. The workshops are free to attend, and are taking place in various locations around Australia.
