For the complex wine course, i have different level:
introduction to wine (1 day course + test)
Wine level 1 (2 days course + test)
Wine level 2 (3 days course + test )
Wine level 3 (3 days course + test)
When my students complete their training and pass their test, i would like to reward them with a certificate of achievement. i want to make sure i can deliver those certificates without specific conditions.For the basics wine classes (2 h with no test at the end), can i deliver a certificate of attendance or something similar ?Thank you for your answer.

the certificate will prove that the student has been studying the course (number of hours) in the subjects review during the course ( wine, spirits, beer or cigars). it also prove that the student has pass the test at the end of course with success
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
basically, it just attest that the student has achieve the course and has pass the test.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
it does not confer any diploma, any legitimate degree...
Education lawyer: Loren, Attorney replied 10 months ago
Thank you for the additional information.
So long as you are not defrauding the students by representing the certificates confer any more than they do, there is nothing illegal in providing students certificates of achievement.
In other words, you can not represent the certificates are affiliated with any organizations or official standards/cerifications.
Otherwise, there is no law which prohibits it.Please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
