Candy Basics Course

Registration closed for the 2024 course
A new one-week course being run for the first time from March 25 through March 29, 2024

What is the Candy Basics Course?

The one-week Candy Basics course is designed to instruct production, sales, and managerial personnel in candy technology. The course begins with the chemical and functional interactions of ingredients and progresses to lectures on all types of candies taught by industry experts. Participants will also gain hands-on laboratory experience with hard candy, gummies & jellies, panning, caramel, and chocolate.

Who should attend?

Candy Basics is more condensed than our two-week Candy School and is intended primarily for non-technical personnel who wish to increase their knowledge of confectionery technology.

International students are welcome to attend! Since the course is taught entirely in English, it is recommended that all attendees have a strong command of the language in order to get the most out of the course.
