Bartending School Online - FAQ
How long have you been training bartenders?
We've been training people to become professional bartenders since 1980 in schools all across the United States. In that time we've trained over 200,000 bartenders!
There are a lot of online courses out there, what makes yours so special?
Our online course speaks for itself. It is based off of our wildly successful chain of Bartending Schools which are located across the country. We have been operating Bartending Schools for over 20 years. Our course features cutting edge interactive technology, hours of course video, and second to none support services via phone, email, chat and forums. There is not a better online bartending course out there, GUARANTEED!
What is included with the online course?
Our high quality, web based bartending course includes instant, lifetime access to our online training program (which contains over 14 lessons, hours of course video & recipe video clips, interactive training tools and more!) and access to our phone, email & forum based support service. Plus, practice mixing kits, bartending books, software and more can be added to any course option or purchased separately from our bartending store.
What's the difference between your online and "hands on" training programs?
The only difference between our online school and "hands on" school curriculum is that the online school does not take place in a physical location, which means that you won't have easy, structured access to hands on practice. It's the same exact course material. However, by purchasing one of our great, affordable practice kits you can easily practice at home and increase your skill even more!
Do I really need "certification" to bartend?
No. No state in the U.S. requires a bartending certificate to bartend. However, this course will give you the knowledge you need to be a competent bartender when you get a job behind the bar or if you're just looking to impress you friends at the next party. It will also give you an edge when competing for jobs against applicants that do not have such training.
Why is the online course so inexpensive compared to going to a "hands on" bartending school?
For obvious reasons such as decreased overhead from not having to lease expensive buildings, and the simple fact that delivering a course via the internet is much more efficient.
How long does the course take?
The course is based off of the exact same course materials that our "hands on" schools use, which is designed to take 40 hours to complete. You can complete the online course in more or less time than that, it's entirely up to you. There are absolutely no schedules or time considerations whatsoever.
I live in New York, but your schools seem to be mostly on the West Coast, are the drinks you teach going to be different than what the schools teach over here?
Absolutely not! The drink recipes contained in our training program have been fine tuned over the years to be consistent across the country. In fact we used to own, and have affiliate schools on the east coast. Our course will give you the skills and training you need to work anywhere in the World - though if you do decide to head over to the other side of the pond, you may need to work on your Metric conversions!
Do you offer job placement assistance for the online course?
The short answer is no. However if we have done our job training you, and you follow our course materials (which contains a section on obtaining a job as a bartender) than you can easily obtain a job on your own. However we do offer professional job placement assistance through our "hands on" schools if you'd prefer to attend one of those. Our Online Course does however provide access to our exclusive Bartender Resume Creation Module, which help you build an extremely attractive, well organized, professional Bartender Resume that will ensure your application makes it to the top of the stack!
Do you have a money back guarantee?
Yes, if you are not completely satisfied you may request a refund within 7 days of enrollment. Here's the rest of the fine print: Shipping and Handling Charges are Non-refundable. Any goods you are shipped must be returned in their original, un-used condition prior to a refund being made. A $9.95 restocking fee will be charged in the event of returned Mixing Kits. Any refund requests can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include your name, email address and user name.
Can't I just Learn this from a book?
It's definitely no huge stretch to think if you can learn Bartending from an online course then you can learn it from a book, or even an e-book for that matter! While this is true, everything included in Online Training Program provides is a tremendous value even when considering learning from a book as a viable alternative. Considering you get Hours upon Hours of structured, professsionally filmed Course & Recipe Videos, MP3 Course downloads, Challenginge Tests, Our Exclusive Bartender Resume Module, Interactive Pour Tester, Printable Lessons, Interactive Recipe Book, a Certificate of Completion and much more for only $74.99 - can you honestly compare this with what you'll get from a book?
