Hi

I wanted to know if the course content they teach you in Course1,2,3 are covered in the Master Course?

And what exactly is the content in both of those courses. I have contacted the school itself to ask but I didnt tell me what exactly are the topics in the course?

Do they offer the Master Course in Australia-as I was told it would be cheaper for me to do the course there than in USA, but I am not sure if they only offer courses 1,2,3 in Australia. I am in South Africa and I am currently working with the Wilton Distributor to bring the Wilton Method here.

I inquired about becoming an instructor-what is everyone's view on that. If I want to become an instructor should i do the instructors course or would the Master Course be sufficient. What do you learn in the instructors course that you don't learn in the Masters?

And also how long is the instructors course-the school did not answer my question regarding this and the cost of the instructor's course.

Thanks

I have taken the courses I, II and III and also attended the Wilton Master's Course in Chicago. The hands on experiece you get during the Master's Course is beyond fabulous. There are two instructors and they personally take as much time as they can to work with you on each technique. In my opinion, you learn more in Chicago. Is course III, the fondant class? We really didn't go over fondant. They did do a demo but you can also take additional evening classes while in Chicago attending the Master's course. I loved it and would do it all over again. I am going back in June to take the couse Collette Peters will be teaching.

I never had the opportunity to take the Master's Course in Chicago, but had taken the full Four (now condensed into three) Wilton Method courses. After completing the courses, I taught for Wilton at a Michaels Store. I would think you would learn a lot more from the Master's Course, but can get along fine with the three Wilton courses if your goal is to be a WMI (Wilton Method Instructor). Wilton will supply you with videos on how to teach the courses and with plenty of contacts if you need help/have questions. Wilton also usually has an instructor's seminar once a year in several places in the US (not sure about internationally). The cost for instruction was very minimal (I believe it was something like $40 US to cover suplies).

I too took the Masters course in Chicago. It was intense but worth every penny. Two weeks, 7am - 3pm with the option to take additional courses (I took fondant and gumpaste). If you take the additional courses then your day would start at 7am and end at 7pm.

The instructors were very knowledge and experts in their fields and we all grew very close to them.

They also give a good discount too so we all bought a whole lot of supplies.

We had a lady from Sydney in my class and she said there were no classes in Australia but she thought her trip was worth the money and she did have to buy and extra bag to cart all her supplies back to sydneyicon_smile.gif
