Pacific Bartending School
The state-licensed certificate courses at Pacific Bartending School provide students with the skills and the resources needed to work behind a bar, regardless of their previous knowledge or experience. In addition to learning how to pour drinks and accessorize them with garnishes or handbags, attendees will study roughly 150 basic cocktail recipes as well as the defining flavors and characteristics of the liquors and liqueurs used to make them. Instructors use audio-visual technology to supplement their lessons, and they keep class sizes small to guarantee every student their own workstation to practice at. Afterward, graduates may attend any of the school's complimentary refresher courses or seek assistance with job placement and resumè writing.
