| NEW ZEALAND CHEESEMASTER
Training world class artisan cheesemakers
With a sound general knowledge on all aspects of cheese including it's origins and history, cheese types, cheesemaking practices, ripening and maturing and sensory evaluation, a New Zealand CheeseMaster will not necessarily be a specialist in any one area, but a generalist in all.
THERE ARE 5 MODULES
After completion of the 5 modules there will be a final examination covering material across all modules.
Our onsite training is conducted at the manufacturing site or our affiliate company, Over the Moon Dairy Company.
Commence with module 1 at any time. Complete module 2, 4 and 5 anytime after module 1.
Module 3 dates are set annually. See Advanced courses for dates.
Course Fee: Modules 1,2, 4 and 5 are $350 each.

- A pen and note paper
