Get Certified: Certified Cigar Sommelier Tobacconist (CCST)



Demo CCST School

WELCOME TO THE DEMO CERTIFIED CIGAR SOMMELIER TOBACCONIST CCST SCHOOL.

This is your personalized educational curriculum, designed to help you provide extraordinary professional service to your cigar customers. Through Retail School, Cigar Fundamentals, and Pairing School, you will be guided through the Tobacconist University (TU) Academic Curriculum. You will study parts of Tobacco, Accoutrements, Taste, and Service College, the TU FAQ, glossary, and specialized curriculum for your profession.

Step 1: Sign Up To Be A CCST so your name and store are listed and promoted by TU. Click on the Sign Up To Be A CCST button and accept the Code of Ethics & Standards and provide your personal information: we will need an active email to certify you and maintain your certification.

Step 2: Study at your own pace by clicking on Retail School, Cigar Fundamentals, and Pairing School. Your curriculum is approximately the same amount of information as reading a 75 page book (not including the videos and re-reading).

Step 3: Take the CCST Final Exam when you are ready. The passing grade is 90%, so study hard! If you fail the exam you will have to sign up again and take the test again. But, your company will not incur any additional charges.

Tobacconist Tip
#147
All wrapper leaves have their center stem completely removed but filler leaves only have half. After the stem is removed from a wrapper leaf, there are two remaining halves that are mirror images of each other. Each half of the leaf will wrap one cigar-sometimes two cigars if it is large enough. The bottom, veiny side of the leaf will face inward, touching the binder. While the smoother, top side of the leaf will be outside of the cigar. The shape of the half0leaf, coupled with the smooth side needing to face outward, means that cigars get rolled both right-to-left and left-to-right, hence, cigar wrapping/rolling is an 'ambidextrous' art!
