Secondly, you will be introduced to several tools you will encounter on a daily basis, along with the ways in which to use them effectively. Finally, you will be introduced to techniques you can use in order to set up your bar to ensure a smooth operation and above all to maximum sales.

Products and Correct Storage – Professional bartenders are expected to demonstrate detailed knowledge about the drinks that they create. This module will introduce you to some of the common types of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages which are commonly prepared and served by bartenders.

Health and Safety and Bartender Terminology – The final module in this Professional Bartender course will cover the importance of health and safety.  This module highlights the importance of both personal and professional hygiene and why it is essential to keep the bar area clean, tidy and well presented at all times.
