There are a lot of bartending training programs offered throughout the United States. Some are legit (licensed), many are not. The level of training various anywhere from a 'waste of money' to a 'top-notch entry-level training program'. Unfortunately too many people seem to think that to land a job as a bartender you simply need to learn some basic drinks and get a so-called certificate. NOT SO! Almost every student that comes into our school are taken back by the amount of information they have to learn and the behind-the-bar practice they need to put in to pass our bartending exam. Bartending may not be rocket science, but it ain't no walk in the park.  When someone tells you that 'bartending school was a waste of money' -  it's probably because they lacked the right bartending skills, personality, and persistence to land a bartending job. Attending a run-of-the-mill bartending course with inadequate training ain't going to give you the skills to work as a bartender!

All Bartending schools are NOT created equal! So before you sign up to any bartending school, drop by the 'New York Bartending School' and sit in on a class. Then go and visit other licensed bartending schools in NYC and COMPARE!
