If you live in an area where no bartending school is available, taking an online bartending course is an option for those who are quick learners or have some experience in another position in a bar.
An online bartending school is also a fun way to learn how to make drinks at home for entertaining friends and family. An online bartending school is never a substitute for the hands-on experience and professional instruction you would receive at a quality brick and mortar bartending school. If you are seriously thinking of learning bartending as a full or part time career, you owe it to yourself to attend a quality, state-licensed school.
Training and education is the same for all fields. The more you have, the greater your chances to succeed. In summary, go to a quality, state-licensed bartending school if you can. If not, try the PBSA Cocktail challenge. For $24.95 it's a bargain
