Certification Programs

Certified Cider Professional

The American Cider Association administers the Certified Cider Professional program. This first ever cider accreditation program is designed for distributors, chefs, servers and others who are interested in becoming bonafide experts on all things cider. Hard cider’s popularity has dramatically increased in the last several years, and now there is a way for food and alcohol industry professionals to prove their cider knowledge—the Certified Cider Professional program (CCP). American Cider Association has released two CCP exams: The Intro Level and the more advanced Certified PommelierTM.

Cider & Perry Production Certificate Program

The Cider Institute, in collaboration with the Cider & Perry Academy, developed the first certification program for cider & perry production in the world. The certification standards are developed by industry leaders, and courses are taught by university partners at various locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. There are three levels of certification: CINA Foundation Certificate in Cider & Perry Production (CFC), CINA Advanced Certificate in Cider & Perry Production (CAC), and CINA Master Diploma in Cider & Perry Production (CMD).
