Olive Oil Academy
At the successful completion of the official olive oil tasting course a Sensory Aptitude Certificate is provided as per the EU. Regulation 2581.
This certificate is indispensable for italian citizens who want to subscribe to the Elenco Nazionale Tecnici ed Esperti degli Oli Vergini ed Extra Vergini d’Oliva del Ministero delle Politiche Agricole italiano (National Technical Experts of Virgin and Extra Virgin Olive Oils established at the Italian Ministry of Agriculture).
However, this listing is reserved exclusively for Italian citizens only.
For non Italian citizens after passing a sensory and technical test, Olive Oil Academy releases the “Sensory Aptitude Certificate”. This certificate enables entry into the Register of International Olive Oil & Food Quality Experts and participants receive a photo identification card renewable annually.
