PME PROFESSIONAL DIPLOMA COURSES 2016

PME Diploma Courses & Masters Certificate are internationally recognised awards.
They are ideal for those thinking of selling cakes either to family and friends, as a commercial business or for anyone who would like an official qualification for their skills.

There are 3 modules and each module includes at least 25 hours tuition covering a broad range of skills and techniques. On successful completion of each module and attainment of the required standard, the Diploma certificate is awarded. Each module is a separate course and students can choose to take an individual module or two or all three as they wish. Techniques and skills covered do not overlap between modules.

Students that successfully gain their diploma certificates in all three modules are awarded a Masters certificate.

Instalment payments are available for these courses (please ask for details). For students completing all 3 modules with us, we are pleased to offer a 10% discount off of the course fee for the final module which will be applied at the time of paying the final balance for the third module.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the course structured?

There are 3 modules: Sugarpaste, Royal Icing & Piping and Sugar Flowers. Each course is individual and students can complete one, two or all three modules as they wish in any order. A module diploma certificate is awarded after each successfully completed module. The student must attend all sessions of the module and attain a reasonable standard of work for diploma certificates to be issued. Diploma certificates are issued at the discretion of the approved tutor. On successful completion of all three modules students will be awarded the PME Professional Diploma Masters certificate.

How long is the course?

Each module consists of at least 25 hours tuition and can be structured over 5 sessions of 5 hours or 10 sessions of 2.5 hours. Students must attend all sessions to be awarded the diploma certificate.
