This course will take place at the Ally Coffee office in Greenville, SC on October 11, 2020 from 8am-4pm.
Calibration is mandatory every three years to ensure Q Graders align with principal Q Instructors and refresh knowledge and skills in our ever-evolving industry.
Calibration testing is required for those Q Graders whose licenses are about to expire or have already expired. Q Grader Licenses will be reinstated and reissued for all Q Graders who pass the Calibration Testing. A Q Grader Calibration course must be completed within 1 year from certificate expiration (6 months before, and 6 months after, the date of the Q certificate expiration). Unless written consent is given by CQI, Q Graders may not participate in a Q Grader Calibration earlier or later than the allowed timeframe. Q Graders who do not pass the Calibration, the retake of that calibration, or fail all three cupping sessions in a calibration course will be required to take a Re-certification Testing.
The Q Arabica Calibration will consist of three tasting sessions. Upon successful completion of the course, your Q Arabica Grader license will remain valid for another 36 months, starting on the day of expiration.
Course fee includes on-site lunch.
