What Is National Bartending School?
National Bartending School is a peak performance bartending training program, designed for student excellence. Our entire training program is based on a hands-on approach to learning the bartending trade. This establishes comfort behind the bar and the experience that is sought after in the bartending field.
Our curriculum is based around the lives of our students, making it easy for our adult students to enroll and attend classes, no matter what else they have to attend to in their everyday lives. Our classes are flexible and offered multiple times per day. In addition, work experience is important to us, and we are the only school in Southern California that guarantees a bartending job to our graduates!
Location, Location, Location!
When we were designing our school, we realized that location is key to a successful school career. Students must be able to easily attend classes as close to their neighborhoods as possible- that’s why National Bartending has established schools all over Los Angeles County! There is always a convenient location, no matter where you live!
The Best Teachers in the Industry
Our teachers all have distinguished histories in the food and beverage industry, and some are even graduates of our school! They are all just waiting to help you on your journey into bartending. Whether you need help mixing drinks, taking practice tests, or perfecting your bartending skill set, a knowledgeable instructor is always here to assist you!
Schedules are Flexible!
We have streamlined bartending school into only ten chapters, in a book that our school provides to you upon enrollment. It takes only 40 hours of class time to cover the material! Once all chapters are completed you can take the tests for your certification!
We offer classes up to three times per day, five to six days per week. The classes are two hours long and cover one chapter each. The first hour consists of lecture and demonstration by the teacher. The second hour is practical lab experience for the students. In addition, students are encouraged log practice hours when the classroom is not in use, and these hours count towards your total class time.
The testing is in two parts- a written exam and a practical exam. Students receive their bartending certification upon passage of both of these exams! Licensing arrives in the mail very quickly!
We have designed the scheduling to be very flexible. You decide when to attend classes. Because of this, you can get your license done in as little as to weeks. Or, you can attend part time and take up to a year to complete the course. We have built the school structure around the busy lives of our adult students!
Best Work Placement in Los Angeles
Our work placement program is the best in Southern California, and the ONLY program that guarantees you a job once you graduate. In order to offer our students a way to make money and gain experience while they go to school, students are eligible for work placement as event servers or event bar backs. Once a student has passed the testing and received a license, they are allowed to apply for the job listings that we have for event bartenders, and for part time and permanent placement at local bars! We provide hiring services for many high end dining establishments in Los Angeles, and they hire National Bartending graduates every week into permanent positions!
