For 34 years, the Professional School of Bartending's instructors have been pouring the skills, knowledge, and confidence required to successfully tend adult watering holes into students' minds. Wielding martini shakers, stirrers, and bendy straws, students step behind a bar lined with rows of colorful bottles in a training facility that imitates a realistic lounge, where instructors teach a wide variety of recipes and techniques for increased efficiency and professionalism. Students learn customer relations, product knowledge, and responsible service and check their knowledge of current industry trends to ensure students transition smoothly into careers. Upon completion of training, students will be eligible for job placement assistance and TIPS, a five-hour, nationally recognized certification program that amps up interpersonal skills for more responsible alcohol service. Day, evening and Saturday classes are available, which allow the freedom to arrange sessions around a busy schedule or a month-long staring contest with the moon.
