Professional bartending requires so much more than knowing how to put ice in a glass and adding the proper ingredients. The Business of Bartending and Bartending the Easy Way will leave you with a thorough understanding of how the bar business works, the ethics of serving cocktails and a common sense approach to bartending. Other topics included are glassware, garnishes, tools, recipes, bar terms, wine and champagne service, martinis, high-volume sales techniques, laws and responsible beverage. Additionally, the course manual will provide information to help you to start your own bartending service and alternative ways to make money in the beverage industry.

Though these courses offer professional certification, keep in mind that a bartending certificate is not enough to secure employment. Your training and performance are what managers consider when hiring bartenders. The Business of Bartending and Bartending the Easy Way will also teach students what managers are looking for in bar staff, how to make a resume that will impress, how to ace an interview and where to find the best jobs. Job placement "assistance" is not the promise of a job. Better Training, Better Skills and Better Performance are what managers look for. Kellie Nicholson uses her experience as a manager and bartender to teach you what most bartending courses miss.

All students who complete the course will be awarded a Professional Bartending Certificate. The course includes testing for "Serving Alcohol Responsibly" and those who earn scores of 90% or above on all tests will receive the Master's Certificate of Excellence.
