Online Bartending School
Among the options available to you in learning how to bartend, this is the cheapest and most well rounded. You get the training that you’d receive from a bartending school, but you’re able to do it at your own pace and it won’t break your bank. Most people feel that the best way to become a bartender is getting hired as a barback first. However, take it from experience, you can end up stuck in that position for years. You’ll be too busy doing your own job to learn what to do as a tender (also bar managers tend to suck with promotions.) Bartending schools can be very expensive, which is why many people tend to speak against them. So, teaching yourself through an online program or bartending books is truly the best way to go. And if you want to pick up barbacking on top of it, you just add more of a chance to getting that job.
Train at your own speed.
Learn the full skills needed for the job.
It’s fairly inexpensive.
You have to learn from home, so clear up any distractions.

Jason: After reviewing a lot of the websites that you guys have sent in, most are just regurgitated information that was around back in the 1990’s. So far there’s only one that gets the full “Jason Seal of Approval™ (Haha.) I’ve confirmed this with others who have gone through the physical bartending school route, as well as some of my other home learners. This is by far the highest rated all across the board. On that note, if you’ve joined either this online bartending school or others, let me know your experiences!
