Bartenders fill orders for drinks at bars, restaurants and private catered events. Usually, work as a bartender requires a friendly disposition and social skill; however, some bartenders work at a service bar in the kitchen while wait staff bring patrons their drinks. Bartenders are also expected to attend to the business aspects and daily maintenance of the bar. They reorder supplies and manage the cash register, and keep the bar clean and up to sanitary standards. No training is required for bartending, but training may help students with little experience begin to develop skills in mixing drinks.

Typical costs:

  • Bartending school typically lasts a week or two and costs less than $600.
  • At the higher end of the cost scale, Pacific Coast Bartending School in Santa Barbara offers a two-week course for $600.
  • At the lower end of the cost scale, the Academy of Professional Bartendingin Westchester, NY offers a 40-hour course for $295.
  • Shorter, less expensive programs are also offered. Vermont Bartending School[1] , for example, offers a two-day, 10-hour course for $149.

What should be included:
  • Training is focused on learning how to mix typical drinks, and covers topics like basic drinks, mixing techniques, blended drinks and shots.
  • Instruction in tapping and pouring beer, as well as instruction in some basic facts about wine, are usually included in bartender training.
  • Programs help students improve their speed in mixing drinks and serving customers.
  • Information on liquor laws and managing intoxicated customers may also be part of the class.
  • Some programs include assistance in job placement, usually in the form of a job bank that students can access once they've completed the program.
Additional costs:
  • All materials, such as books, are typically included in tuition.
Discounts:
  • Bartending schools generally aren't eligible for federal financial aid and don't offer scholarships. Expect to pay out-of-pocket.
Shopping for bartending school:
  • State certified schools might have to meet certain requirements, like allowing partial tuition refunds for withdrawals and offering a complaint process. State departments of higher education, such as New York State[2] , list certified schools.
