We know that in person training sometimes just isn’t an option for some people. As long as you have access to a screen and internet connection, that is all you need to keep on learning.
Online Bartender Certification
For online bartender training, check out the extensive bartending course at StartBartending.com. This was an online certification course created for those individuals in areas without a local bartending school. The bartending course at Start Bartending is based on our hands-on 32-hour bartending course, but is something you can work through at your own pace. Gather the tools and bottles you need, then work through the videos and exercises until you know the material inside out.
