Since mid 2009 week after week and month after month we’ve consistently and publicly reported grads landing about 20-25 bartending jobs. Nobody matches that. No other source is willing to try. Its amazingly different from any other way to become a bartender.

Our hands on classes in a real bar are DIFFERENT.  We not only teach a lot of drink recipes with easy to remember memory tricks, we actually train people to be effective efficient fast paced bartenders.  It can get you hired, it helps you stick at your bar, it helps you get promoted.  Our instructors are bartenders with deep experience.  They’ve worked a lot of bars, they’ve risen through the ranks.   They know what works and what doesn’t work.

Our management knows it too.   Our management stems from having owned a busy killer bar.  We hired the bartenders, we promoted the best bartenders, and we had to fire bartenders that weren’t working out.  We know how to help people become a bartender.

Everyone on the staff has bartended.  They’ve bartended and they have managed bars and bartenders.   There is a lot of hands on knowledge about the industry in our school.

We are connected to the employers in the region.  We know them, we contact them all the time.  They contact us when they are looking for bartenders.  Our placement system is active.  We reach out to employers all the time.   They contact us.   We have been in contact with employers since 1968.  The market is familiar with our bartending school.  We are the only school in the region and one of the few in the nation with a full time placement director.  Every month, at least 1,000 emails go out between our placement director, grads and employers.   There is a lot of action going on to help graduates become working bartenders.
