Koji Flower- Koji Advisor Training Program


Koji Flower Online Class is a place to learn basic koji fermentation condimental throught the year.

During this Koji Advisor Training program, you will be constantly connected with other students and myself to enhance each other by sharing your experiences, exchange information. I will always be there for you to give you an advice and provide help if necessary.

All class runs at the Facebook group page, using chat to communicate.

Every month, we will have a theme and learn different koji condiments. The basic information is already there in the Facebook Group page with tutorial videos and documents, and you can learn at your own pace.

In addition, there will be one hour Zoom meeting every month, this is the time where we can talk directly and I can answer based on everyone’s interests and requests. I have found that this is a much better way than just listening to my basic lecture. All Zoom meeting will be recorded so that you can watch it later. Of course you can talk with me anytime through chat.

For those of you who are quite busy everyday, this program is good for you too. You can study at your own pace, and I will remind you where we are at, so that you can keep up with everything.
