our response to covid-19

Cider & Perry production courses and Covid-19

As the world continues to navigate COVID-19 and states and municipalities are at different levels of reopening business and community activities, we want to reassure you that we are very carefully monitoring the situation on an ongoing basis in order to take any necessary steps to ensure the health & safety of those enrolled on courses, our instructors, and partners. CINA will continue to develop and offer cider making courses online, and have the following updates for trainings originally scheduled in-person.

For any in-person courses scheduled through the next year, we aim to make a decision as to whether or not to go ahead with it at least 3 weeks before it is due to start. Prior to this, we will communicate with all registered participants as to any contingency plans we are making as to possible course re-scheduling. Please refer to each course's registration page for information regarding refunds. Cider Institute's staff, board, and curriculum partners will continue to develop resources, content, and virtual sessions to continue supporting the education and professional development of cider & perry producers.
