This is a certification exam organized by people in the leather industry.

In the beginner level, you can learn the basics about leather.
The Leather Sommelier exam takes one hour and consists of 50 questions on a mark sheet that is done on a PC.
90% questions will come from the textbook.
The exam fee is 5,500 yen (payment by card accepted)
The textbook is 2,180 yen (bank transfer only)
For example, how leather is made, or how leather is made, and how to buy shoes.
The text is full of information and easy to understand.
The pages on how to make shoes, bags, belts, gloves, and other items are also interesting.
I used to be in that kind of industry, and my study time was slender, about 5-6 hours total.
I could do the test in 10 minutes, looked it over and left in 20 minutes.
The purpose of becoming a leather sommelier is to visit factories!
Apparently, I can go to the leather and care goods factory….
I’m glad to hear that they don’t usually allow the general public to enter the factory.
Well, I don’t know what will happen in COVID-19 ????.
My first impression of the Leather Sommelier exam was, “What? Isn’t it just a way to make money? “
But this price includes to make this textbook, do that test and making pin badges and certification cards , and send them out….
I don’t think they can make a profit at this scale! (I’m sorry…)
It will satisfy your intellectual curiosity and deepen your love for leather goods!
It’s a systematic way to learn, so it’s recommended for leather goods beginners✌️
