Man...if only in the US! Even being in the cradle of US Espresso (SEATTLE), there isn't anything like this for the general public...or haven't I looked deep enough?

Subject: re: Why not in the States?
 

Because of sentiments like this:
   
"In the US, we tend to favor =self-government.=  I can't imagine
supporting a movement for an official =government= standard in
the US.  Certification needs to be voluntary, and to come through
the SCAA - lets leave Big Brother out of it!"

I'm not saying that way of thinking is wrong, but it does make a
nationally recognised standard harder to set up.

For more info on the courses:

THHADFB05A: Plan and monitor espresso coffee service
Click Here (www.ntis.gov.au)

THHBFB12A: Prepare and serve espresso coffee
Click Here (www.ntis.gov.au)

Personally, I think that having a minimum standard everyone
agrees on is a good thing. As is the fact that many educational
facilities countrywide will be offering the training.

I wonder if the Coffee Academy is looking to bring their program to North America...or at least the DVD.
