Milk techniques are also developed with the baristas needing to produce a couple of drinks with a latte art pattern.

The course touches on other aspects such as customer service, health safety and hygiene, and the profit earned by their drinks. The course provides you with the key information to enable you to sit your Barista Skills Intermediate certification that consists of 4 short practical tests and a written exam (25 questions with a pass rate of 70% required). Successful students will be awarded 10 points towards the SCA Skill Program.
