Olive Oil Specialist HOSF 9546

Continuous Intake

Our Olive Oil Specialist course helps you build a fundamental understanding of olive oil – as a culinary ingredient, a grocery product, and a global commodity – and expands your basic knowledge of this everyday ingredient. Study the history and growth of the olive oil industry, and learn how olive oil is cultivated and milled and how different environmental factors impact the quality of the oil. Take part in olive oil tastings in order to understand how olive oil is graded, how to pair olive oil, and how best to use it as an ingredient. This course has been created to help create a consistent foundational understanding for those working in the culinary, hospitality, and retail sectors.

Passing this course earns you a micro-credential, which is provided to you as a digital badge that can be posted to social media platforms (such as LinkedIn).
