Chicago, Illinois Bartending Schools

Calumet City | Chicago | Riverside | Schaumburg | Villa Park

Attending bartending school can be a fun and rewarding experience. Learning to bartend professionally requires hands-on training behind a real bar from a qualified trainer. Bartending is a vocational career that cannot be learned by reading a book or watching a video. There is no substitute for experience.

Most quality bartending schools offer a course that is at least 32 hours long. Three quarters of that time should be dedicated to letting the student practice what they have learned behind an actual bar under the close supervision of a licensed instructor.

The bartending school should have a fully-equipped classroom that includes actual bar sinks, soda guns, beer taps, blenders and professional glassware. A quality school will be licensed by their respective state board of education. State licensing ensures that the school is financially sound and employs state-approved teaching methods. A licensed school must follow the state laws in regard to enrolling students, school policies and offering a uniform refund policy.

We have listed approximately 100 state-licensed bartending schools with their phone numbers and website addresses if available.
