Bartending and Casino College
Students build skills necessary for careers in the restaurant and hospitality industries with Bartending and Casino College's hands-on training programs. Each 40-hour bartending course is divided into 14 distinct sections, which train attendees in how to set up a bar, knowledgably describe different spirits, and make as many as 200 popular cocktails in a single cement mixer. Shifting its focus from behind a bar to behind felt-lined tables, the casino school shows students how to handle cards and read hands for poker and blackjack. The school also teaches how to dexterously spin and flip bottles in bar-flair training sessions and offers job-placement assistance to all of its graduates.
