Barista Course

Study Customer Service English and Barista Skills

The Barista program is exclusive to our Brisbane and Noosa Campus, provides high-quality Barista and Customer English training.

Every student will receive at least eight hours of supervised work experience in our fully operational café, meaning that graduates are in high demand from local employers.

Just as importantly, we included two units of Nationally Recognised Training – SITXFSA005 (Use hygienic practices for food safety) and SITHFAB025 (Prepare and serve espresso coffee) – both critically important in finding work in the food service industry.

Students will leave with a Lexis English certificate highlighting their study of Customer Service English, as well as two units of competency of Nationally Recognised Training.
