Master Accreditation Testing Changes

In addition to the new site, we are also working to get the Master Accreditation Written Exams posted on our new Path learning management platform, USBG Academy, powered by Blue Sky. 

At the end of 2015, we terminated our testing arrangement with TTN Learning. Currently, online testing is not available. 

Please "Favorite" the Master Accreditation community, which can be accessed by clicking on "Programs" from the navigation bar. Once you have favorited the community, you will be notified of live testing events that may be happening in your chapter or region. 

We plan to offer live testing events for the Spirits Professional, Advanced Bartender Written and Advanced Bartender Practical at each of the Regional Conferences. More details will follow, but the dates are: 

April 10th          Western Regional Conference          Honolulu, HI

April 17th          Southwest Regional Conference      Park City, UT

April 24th          Midwest Regional Conference         Indianapolis, IN

May 1st              Northeast Regional Conference       New York, NY

May 8th              Southern Regional Conference        Charleston, SC

If you have any questions, please email me at 


Technical difficulty and future of online testing.

I do not see a Master Accreditation heading under "Programs." If I'm missing something, please let me know. Also, are there plans to reinstate the online testing for the Spirits Professional portion? I sincerely hope so. Thanks.

Would've edited the previous post as to not look so foolish but don't see a way to do that. In short, I stopped "hovering" over the programs section and actually clicked. So, we'll consider that problem solved. I still am curious about the future of online testing. Thanks again.

Future of Online Testing

Hi, Brad! 

Thank you for your interest in the MA Program! 

We are hoping to reinstate onine testing as soon as possible. However, we are waiting for the timing element to be added to our new learning management system. We do not have a time estimate on when this will be added, only that it is in the works. 

We have reached out to each chapter council to ask them to consider hosting a live testing event for their members during the month of February. The Spirits Professional and Advanced Bartender-Written Exams would be offered. Please encourage your chapter officers to sign-up, if you would like to take one of these exams. 

All levels of testing will be available during the Regional Conferences. 

Please let me know if you have any additional questions (
