Sterling College Artisan Cheesemaking Professional Certificate program

Makers & Mongers continues its collaboration with MonS Formation in offering an online version of a suite of artisan cheesemaking courses that may be taken individually or pursued collectively to attain Sterling College’s Professional Certificate in Artisan Cheesemaking.

Sterling College and Mons Formation are known worldwide for their courses in artisan cheesemaking. Together, these two institutions  take students from soil to cave to plate, demonstrating how the best cheeses in the world are made and opening up the world of possibilities for new artisan cheeses that are yet to be developed.  Live your passion and become a cheesemaking artisan and entrepreneur, equipped with the knowledge, expertise, and experience gained through the completion of the Artisan Cheesemaking Professional Certificate.

We have developed a combination of powerpoints, readings, and quizzes for self-study, along with videos and live review, practise, and even at-home hands-on sessions to replicate as closely as possible the unique experiential learning program that Mons Formation has traditionally offered.
