Frequently Asked Questions

Are the courses really FREE?

Yes, we have some great sponsors that have great products and we have additional products for purchase should you want to take your bartending to a professional level.

Do I need a bartenders certificate?

NO! Companies that say this are being dishonest. Handing a certificate to a manager of a bar or nightclub is one of the last things you want to do. Anyone can print out a certificate, it means nothing and shows the owners or managers hiring nothing.

Are the courses hard?

It’s not hard, but it is thorough – meaning there are lessons, and each lesson has approx 10 topics, sometimes less, sometimes more. There is a combination of text, images, and video for each lesson. After you’ve gone thru the lesson material, there is a lesson quiz, you need to pass all lesson quizzes with an 80% or better in order for us to place you as an intern. This suggests to the potential employer that you know what to do and when.
