Almost everyone has mixed cocktails for friends and family at dinner parties, holiday parties, and other special occasions. Mixing cocktails in a fast-paced, noisy bar, however, requires a different set of skills. At bartender school, you will learn how to mix classic and new cocktails, pour perfect pints of beer, and much more. Here are answers to common questions potential students ask about programs at Professional Bartending Schools of America:
How Long Does Training Take?
We offer a program that we call “bartending boot camp.” In ten separate intensive 4-hour class sessions, you will learn all the essential skills you will need to succeed as a bartender in even the busiest establishments. You can study as quickly or as slowly as you like, taking the courses over according to your schedule and availability.
What Is a Bartender’s Average Income?
The income you can expect as a bartender varies depending on where you work. Generally, in smaller urban areas, bartenders can earn between 100 and 200 dollars each day. The bulk of your income will come from tips. If you work full time as a bartender, 30 to 40 hours per week, you can earn anywhere between $500 and $900 total each week.
Are There Any Enrollment Requirements?
In most states, the law requires us to conduct a personal interview with each candidate prior to admission. During this session, we will give you an overview of the program, a tour of the school, and a preliminary look at the job placement process we offer to graduates. You can even choose to come visit an actual class so you can see what the program involves and experience our top-notch instruction.
