Barista School Perth – Is an Accredited Barista Course Worth It?

Barista Training: Is accreditation worth it? – Barista School Perth

Perth’s hospitality sector is a vastly growing and exciting industry, in particular the evolving coffee culture. We have seen an increase in boutique coffee roasters and speciality cafes within the Perth coffee scene, as Perth locals love their coffee and always on the hunt for local trendy cafés with the ‘best’ coffee. Due to this ‘trendy culture’ there is popularity among individuals wanting their own hospitality business.

These changes have seen a steadily increase in hospitality job opportunities, which has had a positive impact on the barista training courses available in Perth. Barista Schools provide training for individuals and businesses to gain the skills and knowledge required to make café quality coffee. The Perth locals no longer just want their coffee to ‘taste amazing, it also needs to ‘look amazing.’ Job seekers are hunting for Barista Schools near by to have that competitive edge at interviews over other candidates.

The questions people tend to ask are “Are you a Registered training organisation [RTO]”? Or “Do you offer Accredited Barista Courses in Perth?”

At Barista School Perth we do not believe an accredited barista course needs to be a mandatory requirement at a barista school in Perth. A registered training organisation requires you to be taught by a certified trainer. We believe Barista training courses in Perth should be taught by experienced and passionate baristas, and that RTO’s are out of touch. Our concern isn’t with the SITHFAB005 Prepare and Serve Espresso Coffee accredited itself, it’s the current process of how it’s being delivered by some RTO’s. A lot of what is being taught is generally out of touch with modern coffee practise. The barista accreditation process just needs to be reviewed to align with the evolving Perth coffee culture.

When Barista School Perth was established in 2012, we saw a need in the market for quality barista courses in Perth. We pride ourselves on being Perth’s most innovative and entertaining barista school, offering a range of barista training courses in Perth, introducing new methods and ideas. Coffee is always evolving at a rapid rate, with coffee professionals exchange ideas daily on open forums and via the internet.

Was such a friendly and inviting environment to learn in, and was taught in an easy to understand way. This all made an amazing experience that I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to do the course.
