Riverside Bartending School has an excellent reputation with our bartending certification because of the time we spend with our students. Many bars and restaurants will not hire from bartending schools, but they hire from us.
Bar and restaurant owners and managers respect our certification for many reasons. For example, when one of our graduates finds their first job, and they need help with learning a signature drink list we help them at the school. This help ensures the student is successful when they show up their first night at their new bartending job. We also do the same thing for wine lists. We will help our graduates learn the wine list at any restaurant at which they work. Employers love us because they save big bucks on training.
Bartending Certification or Knowledge
Many ask whether they need bartending certification or knowledge. Our bartending school in Riverside is the only bartending school offering a complete and comprehensive bartending program. Our program is number one for a reason. First, our students receive as much one-on-one instruction as they need. Second, our program consists of 100-hours of training rather than the standard bartending school of 30 to 40 hours. Therefore, owners and managers hire from us because our graduates are high volume bartenders when they graduate. Bartenders must be able to keep up with the demand for orders, or they will lose profit for their bar. Riverside Bartending School teaches our students to run the bar in a high volume setting.
Bartending Certification is Helpful But Not Necessary
The reason Bartending Certification is helpful but not necessary is some establishments will not hire you without a bartending certification. Conversely, others will. Several factors play into one becoming a successful bartender. For example, we hear of many people working their way up in the industry. Of course, working your way up takes a couple of years.
However, we like to think of Riverside Bartending School as being the fast track to becoming a successful bartender. At Riverside, we can help you become a bartender in a few weeks. Without proper training and guidance, it is rare for someone to find work as a bartender. When one enrolls at Riverside, we break out the resources we have accumulated for three decades. We genuinely help every graduate one-on-one, so they are successful.
