Bartender certifications and liquor license permits are issued the day you complete your bartending course, so you can start your mixology career in a week!
"I was a student of the bartending academy and thoroughly enjoyed it. You can learn all you need in one to two weeks, and the tuition will pay for itself within one month of working in the field. It's a fun vocation that'll always be in demand and provides the freedom to work anywhere with good pay and a flexible schedule."
