Masterclass Series

Single classes on food travel topics or take several and earn a Master's.

We're creating a series of Masterclasses to train professionals on specific skills or subject areas, specifically as they relate to food and beverage tourism. Our Masterclasses are a group of online courses that have been custom-designed to meet the needs of professionals like you.

A single Masterclass is a self-contained module about a specific subject and is suitable for anyone interested in that subject matter. Multiple Masterclasses, comprised of both core and elective modules, are the foundation of our new Master Culinary Travel Professional (or MCTP) program. The MCTP program grew out of our original Certified Culinary Travel Professional (or CCTP) program, which was overhauled in 2018 to meet our industry’s current and future education and training needs. The Master’s program will be available through our website soon and also through special licensing arrangements with certain academic institutions around the world.

Masterclass Features

We've made it easy for you to fully comprehend the content of each Masterclass. All courses include:

  • Narrations are in English language (US and UK accents)
    High-resolution video presentation, with easy pause, fast forward and rewind buttons
  • Go directly to any narrated word or phrase with full-text search
  • Closed captions to read the narrated words with the audio (can be turned off)
  • Comprehension test at end to see if you remember some of the most important points
  • Thirty (30) day calendar access (view as many times as you wish)
