Get Certified: Certified Cigar Sommelier Tobacconist (CCST)

Demo 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
John Rolfe was the first colonist to cultivate tobacco commercially in Jamestown (VA) in 1612. It was so economically successful that incentives had to be created to encourage colonists to grow food.
