The Wine & Spirit Trust (WSET) Level 2 Certification Course (formerly the Intermediate course) is suitable for beginners and for those with some experience with wine. This qualification is popular with wine and spirit employees and will give students excellent all-around product knowledge. The course is also suitable for the interested consumer. There is not a prerequisite course requirement.

The WSET Level 2 Certification Course is taught over 5 classes, with an exam in week 6. The aim of the course is to focus on the key grape varieties and regions of the world, as well as principal varieties of spirits. While the course provides an overview of the wines and spirits of the world, including main wine grapes and regions, it also covers factors affecting wine quality and style, grape growing, and basic winemaking practices. The course emphasizes tasting assessment and the skills required to describe the aromas and tastes of wine. It helps to develop fundamental tasting and assessment skills. During each session of the class, students taste 8-9 wines. The exam in week 6 takes 1 hour and consists of 50 multiple-choice questions. Those who pass the exam receive the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits, an internationally recognized credential in the wine industry.

Capital Wine School also offers a Home Study option, as well as an occasional Intensive course, for the WSET Level 2.
