In bar classrooms outfitted with real equipment and experienced instructors, the students at Professional Bartenders School learn to mix, pour, and serve their way into the barkeeping industry. Courses ranging from six hours to two weeks instill pupils with the tenets of professional drinksmanship, such as free pouring, drink recipes, and customer service. Students fill glasses with spurts from soda guns, simulated liquor from real bottles, and garnishes carved from organic plastic lemons as they learn drink recipes and mixing techniques. Upon certification, newly minted bartenders receive lifetime job-placement help, with access to a database of hospitality employers.
BarreVite students may rely upon the ballet barre for support, but that doesn’t mean the workout caters to the meek.

Fly with Mark's instructor understands that flying a plane and teaching someone to fly a plane are two entirely different endeavors. Fortunately, the pilot is not only a skilled flyer, but a skilled teacher as well, having taught in other fields for a full decade before he began flying. As a pilot, he has helmed many types of aircraft, tackled cross-country trips, and navigated through challenging weather conditions, including that time the clouds actually turned into cotton candy.
The pilot knows that his students are impatient to get their first taste of flight, so flight in the actual airplane is included in the first visit. He hopes this foray into the friendly skies kindles the desire to complete a full 40 hours of training, which enables students to become solo pilots. Students can then have the option to experience the freedom and feeling of flying themselves to exciting destinations they've wanted fast and easy access to.
While the average person spends thousands of hours stuck in traffic during a lifetime, the instructors at Learn To Fly San Diego prefer to rack up that time in the sky. Each member of the certified flight team keeps track of their time off the ground, with numbers ranging between 1,500 and 36,000 hours. As the propellers turn on Cessna and Piper planes, the pilots lead passengers on training flights and sightseeing tours. Students can also work with Learn To Fly San Diego to train for certification in occupations such as commercial pilot, certified flight instructor, and chauffeur for superheroes that can't really fly.
