Bartending is a great job for many people, and often is so lucrative that it becomes a full time career. However, the job is not the same as it was years ago. The modern bartender has a diverse set of mixology and bartending skills, and establishments often require that their prospective employees have already learned the required knowledge to be successful on from the first day on the job.

The issue is that owners of restaurants and bars do not have the time to teach someone with no knowledge of bartending all of the skills required of the job. Reputable bartending schools like ours are the best way to ensure you get the training you need before applying for jobs. Our courses will both provide you with the necessary skills, and help you get your job through our placement services, and simply by having an American Bartending School Certification on your resume.
