THE SOMM360 DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (SDP): THE ELITE CAMP APPLICATION FORM 2020
The Elite Camp will offer an intensive 5-day educational and competition training program for a select group of up to 20 Sommeliers including 1:1 mentoring with top industry peers, as well as service, blind tasting, and stress management coaching. The participation fee is 5,500$ CAD and also covers your accommodation and meals from September 26/27 to October 1, 2020, in Montreal. To get a better picture of what you can expect, we invite you to read the article "No pain, no champagne: the Bootcamp" in our newly released online magazine here: https://magazine.somm360.com/no-pain-no-champagne-the-bootcamp

If your application is selected by our SDP committee to partake in the Elite Camp, you will automatically receive a scholarship of excellence of 5,000$ CAD. You only have to cover your own travel expenses (flight) to and from Montreal and the remaining balance of your program fee which is “500$ CAD + taxes”. These are your only financial contributions to the training program. We will offer special flight rates through our official airline partner to help you reduce your travel costs.

The applicant should have partaken in the Best Sommelier of the World competition in the past to qualify. Thank you for filling the required information in the below form and submitting your application no later than January 31st, 2020. The requested information will remain confidential. We'll notify you about the status of your application in February 2020.

If you have any questions about the Elite Camp or the application or encounter any technical issue, please contact info@somm360.com

Visa & entry regulations for Canada
IMPORTANT: Most people need a visa OR an Electronic Travel Authorization to travel to Canada – not both. Some people may only need a valid passport. Answer a few questions to find out what you need here: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas.asp?_ga=2.81011347.560954445.1519835347-1128023618.1519835347

An eTA costs $7 CAN and is electronically linked to your passport. Most applicants get their eTA approval (via an email) within minutes. However, some requests can take several days to process if you’re asked to submit supporting documents. Therefore, we recommend completing your ETA as soon as you booked your airplane ticket. You can complete the electronic travel Authorization (ETA) for Canada here: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/visit-canada/eta/apply.html

If you’ll need a special Visa to travel to Canada, please let us know plus if you’ll need assistance (i.e. letter confirming your presence at Somm360 Boot Camp, etc.)
