Mix fun, good money and interesting people into one job.
Bartending has a lot to offer. The variety of jobs (full and part time, day and evening, weekday and weekend) is only surpassed by the variety of venues with bars that need bartenders...sports bars, hotels, resorts, casinos, night clubs, restaurants, caterers, country clubs, airports, cruise ships, lounges, convention centers, etc. Earnings range from $20 - $50 an hour, including tips. And not many vocations offer the kind of job security bartending does. These jobs will not become obselete, off-shored or replaced with a temp agency.
National Bartenders School in Mountain View, California has a lot to offer as well. In just 2 weeks, you can be a fully certified and confident bartender, ready to enter into the lucrative, fun and exciting profession of professional bartending as part of one of the largest business segments in the United States today...the hospitality industry. Professional training is all-important in obtaining the top paying bartender jobs. Gone are the days when people can teach themselves. Our program combines bartending theory with extensive hands-on practice that provides our students with all the information and skills necessary to become a successful bartender.
Our comprehensive and thorough approach is what gives our grads the edge over other non-professionally trained bartenders. The school's cocktail lounge classroom contains front and back bars, bar sinks, speed racks, ice bins and cocktail units, soda guns, mixing equipment, blenders, garnish trays, ice machine, bar stools, hundreds of assorted glassware and mixes.
MIXOLOGY SKILLS: You'll learn over 120 of the most common mix drink recipes such as Martini's & Manhattans, Cream/Dessert Drinks, Highballs & Mixed Drinks, Two Liquor Drinks, Sours & Blended Drinks, Coffee & Hot Drinks, Exotics & Shooters.
The emphasis is the hands-on training. Each class starts with lecture and demonstration. But after that, everyone goes behind the bar and spends the balance of the class mixing drinks and practicing the recipes taught that day. More than 75% of the students time is spent this way.
KNOWLEDGE: Familiarization with the bar station, basic bar set-up, bar equipment operation, opening and closing the bar, handling money, liquor laws and liability, proper glassware and utensils, wine, beer and champagne basics, garnishes and mixes, stocking the bar, bar techniques...shaking, buildin, layering, flaming, etc. and inventory control and rotation.
Our instructors are all experienced professional bartenders who themselves have taken the course. They are skilled, patient, knowledgeable and friendly, with a great deal of inside information to with the students. They'll teach you free pouring techniques that uncertified bartenders never learn. You'll also learn how to pour several drinks at the same time, using the correct glassware, the importance of presentation and the different types and varities of liquor, including their origin and history.
We'll also cover guest relations and customer service, including handling difficult situations and especially important today...alcohol awareness issues with your customers. We'll show you how to make more money in tips and how to keep your guests coming back to you bar.
