SPECIALTY COFFEE ASSOCIATION COURSES
International Quality Education You Deserve.
Barista Guild Asia™ conducts the Coffee Skills Program curriculum developed by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA), an internationally recognized organization for coffee professionals and educators in every aspect of the industry. BGA's renditions of its modules often incorporate more than the SCA syllabus entails, moulding the program to the needs of Malaysia's own coffee community.
How it works
The SCA categorizes its modules according to the number of points awarded in each module:
Foundation Level (Level 1) - 5 points
Intermediate Level (Level 2) - 10 points
Professional Level (Level 3) - 25 points
To be awarded the SCA Coffee Skills Diploma by an Authorized SCA Trainer, candidates must complete a combination of modules to achieve a total of 100 points. Each module offered by Barista Guild Asia™ provides individual certificates after completion of both BGA internal and SCA external examinations. The SCA examination is optional for all students.
