This professional Bartending course includes the state and national SMART certification (Servers and Managers Alcohol Responsibility Training) recognized by the Connecticut Department of Liquor Control and police departments. Servers of alcohol are taught to serve responsibility, how to spot signs of intoxication, and how to respond appropriately. Students will learn to make more than 100 drinks from gin-and-tonics to daiquiris. Instruction focuses on opening and closing procedures, product knowledge, speed of preparation, and people skills. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be qualified to work in any environment that serves liquor, including restaurants, clubs, hotels, and catering companies. Students receive a certificate of completion and the SMART certification.

This is a great industry and an exciting profession. S.M.A.R.T Bartending is designed to put personality and finesse back into the bartending style and help you develop the skills to make you feel comfortable.   



How are we different? We know that great customer service means better tips for the server. Our course focuses on developing the essential skills and qualities that you need while working with customers. It's not just about having the recipe's memorized. Learn how to stock your bar for ease of preparation, how to appropriately interact with customers, and much, much more.

Will I receive a certificate? Yes. At the end of the course you will receive your "grade" as well as a certificate of course completion.

Why are we less expensive than other programs? It's simple. We have minimal overhead. With the opportunity to work with approximately 12 + local colleges, we are able to utilize their classroom space. This has not only allowed us to pass along our savings to you, but has also enabled us to educate over 30,000. 

Thinking of working at a casino? We are the premier vendor of training services for many local establishments, including casinos.
