VANCOUVER, BC – The Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) Brewing Diploma Program has announced two upcoming online information sessions for those considering program enrollment, as well as details of two part-time continuing studies courses that will be offered next month.
The KPU Brewing Diploma Online Information Session will take place on Thursday July 25th and Thursday August 8th from 12:30 to 1:30 PM PDT each day, and will be presented by instructor Jon Howe and recruitment coordinator Scott McLeod, who will “give an overview of our Brewing Diploma curriculum, admission requirements, a typical day-in-the-life of Brew students, careers and employment in the industry, and much more. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions during the session.”
Attendance is free for these information sessions, but advance online registration is required.
Later in August, the school will be holding the latest edition of Brewing Chemistry Basics, a four-part continuing studies course led by instructor Martina Solano Bielen, M.Sc. that is aimed at both professional and amateur brewers who “want to brush up on their brewing chemistry [and] understand the chemical foundation of beer and the science behind it.”
In addition, KPU will be offering a four-part Prud’homme Beer Enthusiast Level 1 course, taught by Alek Egi, M.Sc., and “designed for people interested in furthering their knowledge and interest in craft beer.”
The Brewing Chemistry Basics course will run on August 19th, 22nd, 26th and 29th, from 6:30 to 9:30 PM each evening, and the Prud’homme Beer Enthusiast Level 1 course will run on August 19th, 21st, 26th and 28th from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. Both will be taking place at the KPU Surrey Civic Plaza Campus.
