Southern New England Bartending Institute
To learn how to bartend, one most likely requires access to a bar. At Southern New England Bartending Institute, the classroom revolves around a functional bar and several training stations where students put the techniques they learn to the test. Their curriculum is more than just drinks, however; instructors—some of whom have worked at multimillion-dollar resorts—also guide students through TIPS certification training, which ensures that they understand how to sell alcohol responsibly.
