I just recently saw there there will be WSET 2 award course in my area. While I was on the WSET website I noticed that they have come up with a new format for WSET 2, basically excluding spirits. My focus is on wine so I feel that the new format would be best. Does anyone have any insight on the comparison between the old and new courses? I would really like to take the course this fall, but if the new format covers a substantial amount more material I could hold off.
I have to second Kevin, if you passed CMS intro then level 2 won’t have that much more new information. It is my understanding the the largest changes to the format, at this point, has been at the diploma level. I did my level 3 earlier this year it’s definitely not a cake walk, and not cheap! (The school I went with charged $1400). I plan on starting the diploma level in January.
Happy to answer any questions about my level 3 experience.
