increase your income

It’s very common for bartenders to earn $20 to $50 per hour when averaging out their tips and wages combined.  When working several shifts per week, your hard work can start to generate an additional $1500 or more per month just working part-time.  Of course these estimates are affected by how hard you work, when you work, and where you work but our bartenders are motivated to earn extra income by going after opportunities in life and providing great service when they land behind the bar!

…you learn an impressive amount about not only bar tending, but how to look at work, how to fill down time and make your bosses happy, how to interact with customers and how to handle just about any situation. As a recent graduate of Bartenders Academy I have the confidence and skills I need to go out there and get a job at any bar I choose and that makes it so worth it! If you have the opportunity and time to take this course, take it, it is a small investment with a huge pay off!
