New York Bartending School®

Bartending-Mixology Course



FACT: All trade school MUST be licensed by the State Education Department, including bartending schools; however, you do not need a license or any type of certification to bartend in the United States. Attending a licensed school provides you protection via policies like a Tuition Reimbursement Fund - whereas you have no recourse against an unlicensed school. Unlicensed bartending schools are generally fly-by-night operations that are randomy closed down once the education department gets wind of them, so obviously they put little recourses into the facilities, curriculum or training. These are the sham bartending schools that give the industry a bad name.


In regards to 'licensed' bartending schools, the curriculum and level of training varies immensely from one bartending school to another, as there are no industry standard in regards to the facilities, level of training, and certification exam.


The New York Bartending School® IS a licensed school, and as required by the education department, we do provide a diploma (certification) on completion and passing of our mixology exam; however, our emphasis is on providing students with a professional-level hands-on bartending/mixology course, and realistic job placement assistance program to assist all our graduates - certification from the New York Bartending School is not about a certificate, but rather validation of receiving professional-level industry standard training. It is not the certificate that is going to land you that bartending gig, it is the RIGHT training!
