  • Written retest - S$40

Learners must complete their tests 2 months from the date of their class, after which a S$30 administration fee will be applied to reschedule the test date.

Learners may also opt out of doing the tests, in which case there will be no SCA certification awarded. However, these learners will receive a certificate of completion from Bettr Barista.

We require a minimum number of 2 learners (except Green Coffee) to run each class. If the number of sign-ups does not meet this requirement, learners will be notified and have their class rescheduled to the next available date.
