SCA Coffee Skills Program

Terms & Conditions

The Foundation Series package fee includes all written and practical tests (exams will be scheduled another day in 1-hour time slots), as well as two complimentary retakes (valued at up to $160). Any subsequent retests will be charged per module as follows:

  • Written retest - S$40

  • Practical retest - S$80

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 who choose to opt out of doing the tests will receive a certificate of completion from Bettr Barista only (instead of SCA certification).

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. Please visit our FAQ page to learn more about rescheduling/cancellation policies. 

Please note: Registration closes 5 days prior to commencement of class.
