Hi Sharon!

Thanks for the question. Bartenders may teach themselves or learn on the job by working as a bartender helper or assistant. Most bartenders don’t complete formal training for their jobs.

Some bartenders go to bartending schools to receive their initial training. Bartending schools exist across the United States, and experts recommend choosing one that is licensed by your state’s department of education and offers programs that take at least 40 hours to complete.

Students in bartending courses learn how to use bar equipment, mix a wide variety of cocktails, pour different types of beverages, and provide good customer service. They may also learn about health and safety issues, working with cash registers, and interviewing for bartender positions.

Hope this helps!

Hi Sharon! I have bartended in a few restaurants over the past few years and each one had a similar process of becoming a bartender. Each place that I have worked was also a restaurant, and required bartenders to start in other positions, to get a feel for the environment. I have typically started as a hostess to learn the layout and function of the bar, then moved on the become a server to learn how to work the computer and food orders (because all places I've worked required bartenders to take food orders as well), then trained to bartend. Each place is different and I've found they will train you how they want you to work and make drinks, so experience isn't always needed but is helpful in understanding how the industry works!
