Registration Policies

Registration Policy

Candidates may register at any time prior to the beginning of the class, as long as empty seats are available. It is recommended candidates register as early as possible in order to receive shipped course materials in a timely manner and begin reviewing the material prior to class. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age at the time of enrollment and be able to show a valid picture ID proving age. Candidates will not be able to participate in any tastings, or the Level 3 exam, without proof of legal drinking age (21+). Classroom study materials will be shipped to candidates within 2 business days of registration, via a trackable method. It is the responsibility of the candidate to ensure shipments reach them safely once the package has been marked as delivered. Wine Academy of Las Vegas is not responsible for loss of course materials after the package is marked as delivered. Shipping and postage costs are included in tuition prices.

Cancellation Policy

Wine Academy of Las Vegas (WALV) reserves the right to cancel or change course dates and times. In the rare event this must occur, candidates will be notified of the new dates/times. If candidates are unable to attend the new times, a full refund will be issued to the candidate. If candidates cannot attend, they must contact WALV for a cancellation form and submit it to the school. Cancellation forms may be obtained by contacting the school.  

Refund Policy  

Any refunds are less the price of course materials already shipped, and shipping and processing costs. 

Themed Tasting Events: 

Due to the limited, one-time nature of these events, tickets are non-refundable. 

Online Courses: 

Students cancelling past the course registration deadline will be ineligible for a refund, as they will have already been enrolled in the online modules. Online students that are unable or to sit for or do not show up to their scheduled exam will be charged an examination rescheduling fee. 

In-Person Courses: 

A 50% refund will be issued to candidates if registration is cancelled 30 business days prior to the registration deadline of an in-person class. Students cancelling with less than 30 business days notice will be charged a rescheduling fee to be processed onto a new course date. 

Resit Fees 

Candidates who are unsuccessful in their examination attempts will be able to resit the examination with a resit fee. This fee covers registration on a new exam date, exam ordering, exam shipping (to and from London), marking of the exam, and exam tasting samples (L3 tasting and full exams only).
