The Masterclass series of classes are individual classes that you choose based on a specific subject, for example, how to create a food or beverage tour company or event. You purchase each class individually and when the class is done, there is nothing more for you to do, except choose another class of course. Our current Masterclass is hosted on the Udemy learning platform. Each class is pure education, and offers no marketing benefits. So when you complete a Masterclass, there is no official certificate or recognition from the World Food Travel Association.
The Certified Culinary Travel Professional (CCTP) program is our industry's oldest and best respected program to certify experts in the culinary travel field. The program was founded in 2008 and since then, we have graduated hundreds of students. By "students", we mean not just academic students, but professionals as well. Up until now, the content has consisted of watching four instructional videos online, taking a knowledge test, and sometimes one on one consultation with a faculty advisor. We're updating our CCTP program to meet changing student needs. Please check back later for details on what has changed.
