There is a difference between us and the rest…
- The Professional School of Bartending and the Bartending Academy of Rhode Island offers a 30-hour hands-on interactive bartending program. We have offered our 30-hour hands-on bartending program since 1977. Also included in the tuition is the TIPS class, which is an additional 5-hour certification program in responsible alcohol beverage service. Total class time is 35-hours.
- Our competitors offer approximately a 16- to 20-hour actual hands-on program (not including TIPS) and often their “total hours” include breaks for lunch. We are very transparent and only count the actual class hours. They once offered a longer program but have now downsized while the bartending industry has only expanded.
- Our competitors may use fuzzy math in describing the breakdown of what is taught and how much time is really spent behind the bar.
- Our competitors may claim to teach you “bar management” but employers are looking for well-trained bartenders. Bar management takes time. We do not use “unnecessary fillers” to describe our program so that you think you are getting more but are actually receiving less bartending knowledge and experience.
- The Professional School of Bartending and the Bartending Academy of Rhode Island updates its book approximately every 3-years to keep current with new products, drinks, trends and the laws. It is a convenient size that is easy to carry.
- Some of the other schools use a 150-page workbook. You are also required to write down drink recipes. Writing drink recipes takes away from valuable hands-on bar training and if you write it wrong, you learn it wrong.
- The Professional School of Bartending and the Bartending Academy of Rhode Island
- carries an extremely well-stocked bar so that you will be familiar with all the different products to increase your speed and efficiency by recognizing the different brands and products no matter where you work.
- Other schools have a limited selection of products, which will also limit your awareness of product and brand recognition. Check out pictures of their facilities on their websites and compare!
- The Professional School of Bartending and the Bartending Academy of Rhode Island teaches a full range of cocktails from the classic to the newest trends in the industry to prepare you to work in a variety of establishments since each type of business may have a different clientele with different tastes.
- Other schools are proud of the fact that they teach you only the “50 most popular drinks” which will limit your prospects for a good bartending job.
- The Professional School of Bartending and the Bartending Academy of Rhode Island maintains membership in the Massachusetts Restaurant Association and the Rhode Island Hospitality and Tourism Association, which are affiliated with the National Restaurant Association. Not only do we support the industry this way but it also keeps us informed with current trends and changes.
- Other schools do not support the industry
- At the Professional School of Bartending you will earn your certificate not buy a piece of paper
