About the Professional Bartending Schools of America
Professional Bartending Schools of America is a nationwide group of individually owned and operated, state-licensed bartending schools in the USA.
We don't believe that being a professional bartender is a job that can be learned by video, online program or at home sitting on your couch! We work hard to fully prepare our graduates for a career in mixology, whether it be at a nice local neighborhood bar or the fanciest hotel or nightclub in town. Their success is our company's reputation!
Professional Bartending Schools of America now includes 36 state-licensed bartending schools nationwide. Our 36 bartender schools trained over 10,000 bartenders in 2009. We view a bartender's job as a professional career and only offer hands-on training behind a fully-equipped bar in a permanent school facility. We offer one, two and five week bartending courses during the day, evening and weekends. PBSA offers our graduates local, nationwide and online job placement assistance. Our classes include Anheuser-Busch and Guinness beer training, along with responsible alcohol certification.

After recently losing my job, I decided on trying bartending out. I was referred to the Maryland Bartending Academy by a friend of my mothers, telling me that her daughter had gone and they had helped her find a job as well. I signed up and was amazed by the amount of things that you learn at the school. As a frequent bar goer, I knew some of the drinks that we learned, but learned so much more. I think this is an awesome 2 week course, and the job placement assistance makes it alone worth price.

I just recently graduated from MBA and I can't say enough good things about this school. At first I was hugely skeptical about attending a bar tending school, especially since so many people were telling me that it was a waste of time and money and how NO ONE hires people who go to bar tending school! Well, that was a joke. Here I am, fresh out of class, and I have already gotten 2 job offers! The staff is amazing. I went to the night classes and Shelley was my instructor. She made the class fun and I was always excited for what was to come in the next class. It was a great experience. I almost wished it was a little longer. I recommend this school to anyone looking into bar tending. They offer lifetime refresher courses and job placement. You really can't beat that.

MBA was amazing. Instructors were knowledgable and very friendly. The people were great, I made good friends. We learned a lot, tons of behind the bar practice to familiarize yourself with the bar environment and the job placement helped me land a job shortly after graduating. I would definitely recommend them.
