ONAOO PROFESSIONAL TASTER
Attending the advanced course of ONAOO, which lasts “TWO” years, allows the participants to consolidate and improve their knowledge about the tasting of oils and the insertion in the “International Register of ONAOO Professional Tasters”
The major requirements for accessing Advanced Course registration are as follows: first of all, you must have the Physiological Suitability for Tasting issued by O.N.A.O.O. at the end of a recognized technical course; you must be duly enrolled as a member of O.N.A.O.O. and must keep up with the payment of the membership fee.
Why not attend an Advanced Course held by ONAOO?
- to deepen the knowledge about sensory analysis;
- to train smell and taste to recognise specificities which distinguish olive oil;
- to be on the International Register of ONAOO Professional Tasters, where companies could look for the best professionals updated in this field.
For those who are in the International Register it is a very important role because you can become an olive oil taster, a breeder and a master blender in the most qualified companies in Italy and abroad.
