Course Description

Do you love making people happy, making friends, and being the life of the party? Do you mind having other people take you into their confidence and trust you with their best evenings? Do you enjoy the difference between how things taste on the palette and don't mind staying up late into the evening? Bartending is for you. This course will give you the knowledge to join the ranks of one of the world's most respected professions and one with never a dull moment. From the basics of what you need to start out to how to excel at the craft, this course will leave you in the know.

A typical bartending guidebook simply gives you a set of drink recipes, but we all know that each bartender has their own take on most drinks. We mix to our own preferences, or the preferences of our patrons. So what you really need to know is how things mix well together, how to keep your customers safe, and how to keep them tipping! That's the goal of this course--to give you what you really need to know, and prepare you for that all-star position!

This course is open to anyone interested in learning the basics of bartending. You need to be over the age of 21 to pursue work as a bartender and to take this course. This online course can help you become an impressive bartender by showing you everything you need to know about tending a bar, such as knowing the difference between Highball and Lowball drinks; how to shake, stir, strain and pour; the most effective remedy for hangovers; how to set up a bar; plus recipes and useful tips.
