Learning to cook, waitress, bartend, and barback may seem like overpreparing for the food industry, but Restaurant & Bar Industry Training’s experts know that restaurant managers need all of these skills and more. The team teaches future managers the fundamentals of each role they aspire to supervise, as well as skills such as code enforcement and inventory management. Alternatively, the school’s 40-hour classes can focus on front-of-house roles, such as bartending and waitressing, or behind-the-scenes skills, such as cooking or assembling the restaurant’s booths every morning. Regardless of its area of focus, each course culminates in a final exam; students that score 80% or higher receive certification in their area of study.
