Professional Bartending Certification

Fine Art Bartending School provides the most comprehensive bartending certification in the business.  Our company has been setting the standard in bartending training and certification in Canada.  Students find that our hands on bartending course is the best way to prepare them for work in the industry.

We put a strong focus on the things that are most important so students feel confident and comfortable when they get hired. We work on with them not only on their drink recipes but speed and pouring accuracy. Handling multiple drink orders and knowing how to prioritize these orders to maximize efficiency.

Our bartenders are an asset to the establishment that they are hired in. All bartenders are taught proper bartending etiquette. We have developed a set of rules that each bartender will follow so that they can maximize every customers experience that they serve.

As part of our course we prepare you for finding a job in the industry. Employers hire our grads because they know what to expect from the students that we train. Our hands on training program was developed by bartenders, bar owners and bar managers and is the most relevant and current training program for bartenders in North America. In order to be the best, you need to learn from the best!

Fine Art Bartending has partnered with Diageo Canada

Fine Art Bartending School has partnered with Diageo Canada to provide a more comprehensive training system for our bartenders.  We are working with the Diageo Academy to provide our students with a greater understanding of fine spirits. Diageo represents some of the world’s largest brands such as Smirnoff, Crown Royal, Captain Morgan and Johnnie Walker.

Our training now focuses not only on creating great bartenders.  But bartenders that can make a significant impact on the spirit sales of their future employer.   We are the only Bartending School that offers this sort of advanced training.

What does this mean for the students?  Students will now be an even greater asset to their employer.  This advanced training will set our students apart from any other bartending training school.  No other school prepares students for a real life working experience like we do.

What does this mean for the employer?  Quite frankly this advanced training will translate into increased sales for the bar.  This benefits both the bar and the bartender!  Bartenders are no longer drink slingers but they are the front line of customer service.  A knowledgeable and well trained bartender will translate into a better customer experience and therefore into a more loyal customer and increase sales for the bar.
