National Bartenders School, Covina helps its graduates land not a single job, but an entire lifetime of work. Alumni can return to the school for unlimited refresher courses and job-placement aid. First, however, they must earn their bartending degree, mastering the art of crafting, garnishing, and presenting more than 200 cocktails through classes and hours of solo practice. The instructors’ state-approved courses cover traditional bartending and flair bartending, which hinges on tricks such as juggling bottles or igniting shots with a to-scale model sun.
