We have been operating for over 40 years and have been asked about the cost of bartending school well over 100,000 times: Specifically about our bartending school: but also in general about bartending schools throughout the nation. One thing about our response: It’s been consistent over 40 years.
Here are some facts on the cost of bartending school: The costs of all bartending schools in this region are pretty similar. It’s been that way for years, in fact decades. Over these decades The Professional Bartending School has outlasted about 12 bartending schools in the DC region that have come and gone. It’s really about value and payback to the graduates.
We have been priced the same or similarly to all other schools in the region for 40+ years. Over time, year after year others open and close. Our school has stayed open and remains very popular. The difference is we offer lots more value and payback. Here are features that most graduates and prospective students value:
The quality, knowledge and experience of our instructors As the oldest, longest running, most well known bartender school in the region not only do we get the best instructors they constantly upgrade their skills. Check out reviews on our instructors. They are phenomenal. Not only that, our instructors are available to respond to graduates long after the students have left the school and are tending bar.
Hands-On Training We have a large built out bar that can accommodate a lot of students and provide an extraordinary learning experience. Hands on training means you get behind the bar to practice the drinks you learned, then rotate with another student and get to watch, quiz, and order from the other student who is now behind the bar.
Free Refresher Classes and Lifetime Placement We have delivered for over 40 years. In recent memory twice we gave entire free refresher programs to graduates who had taken our program 18 years earlier. Graduates take our program, bartend, stop, and come back to us a decade later. We retrain them for free and give them updated job placement.
Here is the one feature that has consistently grabbed more prospective students than all other reasons. More graduates land bartending jobs through us than all other sources combined! For the last several years on a very consistent basis graduates land about 100 bartending jobs per month. They are all published. No false promises. Nothing made up. Real people, real places, real dates. In many cases you can see pictures of these grads on our website and Facebook page and visit them at their bars.
That kind of dynamic training is the closest experience you will have to real life bartending, is a lot of fun, and it speeds up your learning process. The payback can be quick and rapid. Several days of bartending can pay for the entire cost of your training. Some popular bars in Adams Morgan that have hired our grads for years, made it possible to earn the entire cost of the class in one fun filled busy weekend of bartending. Even if you are working in a slow bar its probable you’ll earn the entire cost of the program after a week or so of work.
Think about it—you learn and develop a tremendous skill in just 40 fast hours, you get an incredible full service job placement program to help you get work…and you can earn that money back in one week!!!! Its an astounding value!!! And of course best of all bartending is fun!!!
