Seattle Bartending College
Through hands-on training and practice sessions in a mock bar, Seattle Bartending College's experienced team of instructors has trained new generations of cocktail crafters and beer pourers since 1980. Broken into 14 sections, classes cover more than 100 types of alcohol, recipes for 150 drinks, and how to master freehand pouring and measuring techniques rather than arduously transferring booze from bottle to glass with a pipette. Along with the nitty-gritty of creating beverages, teachers refine their pupils' customer-service skills, and collaborate with local distilleries and breweries for in-depth seminars on their products. Instructors schedule class in one-week, two-week, or weekend sessions, allowing students to take refresher courses or repeat any class as often as they need. Once students earn their certification and license, the college's staff helps them secure local and nationwide jobs with resume-writing assistance, interview practice, and job leads.
