take a minute and read very carefully what I have to say.
In recent months all kinds of on-line Bartending schools
and courses are popping up. As director of several
established bartending schools and with 32 years of bartending
and beverage hospitality experience I have trained and
placed thousands of bartenders because my graduates have
actual “HANDS ON TRAINING” they are hired
and make great money because they can do the job.
Let’s say you want to become a auto mechanic or
technician can you learn that on line? NO you need
to get your hands on the equipment to learn and to the
Reasons for not taking an On-line course:
LEGITIMATE CERTIFICATION: My schools are licensed
and regulated by state education agencies so my certificate
has credibility when you apply for bartending work.
Licensed schools adhere to State guidelines from proper
facilities for training; instructors that have the experience
to teach, job placement guidelines, bonded to assure you
that we will be hear when you need us
LOCAL JOB PLACEMENT: I pay a full time job
placement director who places my graduates, sets up appointments
and interviews, provides private party and event work
on a weekly basis (my grads get paid $20 per hour for
these jobs) no matter what they say you are on your own
with a on-line course once they have your money and have
sent you some drink recipes that is it Good Luck and thanks
for your money.
HANDS ON TRAINING BUILDING DRINKS OR POURING SKILLS:
So you know what is in a Margarita from reading the recipe,
okay get behind a real bar and make a Margarita for me
what do you do first? On the rocks, straight up,
frozen, blended, which tequila, do you use? Triple
Sec or Cointreau? And that is only one drink out
of 150 that you learn at my schools. If you do not
know the answer that tells you licensed schools will provide
you with the education and skills to really become a professional
bartender and make some money.
POURING SKILLS: How do you to hold a liquor bottle
so you pour the right amounts? How do you hold 2
or 4 bottles at one time? How do you pour 1oz, 11/4oz,
11/2oz or 2oz accurately? Can you learn these skills
KNOWLEDGE: What is Dewar’s? What is
Grand Marnier? What does the bottle and label look
like? In my schools you work with the actual bottles
so when you go to work in a real bar you recognize your
product and feel experienced right away, this will not
I could go on and on but you get the point, licensed brick and mortar bartending schools have been around for 40 years and there is a good reason for that our programs work, you are trained to be a professional bartender and you are able to work and make money as one.
get what you pay for if you are thinking of Bartending
do it right, visit our schools and make an intelligent
decision based on facts, what have you got to loose tuition
for most schools is very reasonable graduates usually
make their money back in 1-2 weeks of work. Think
of any school or skill that you can learn and make your
tuition back in a few weeks and let me know what it is.
