Course Objectives / Description

The Certificate in Professional Bartending, a three tier learning process, is a programme for junior and mid level colleagues whose focus is to have a full understanding of bar operations.  The program consists of three modules: Beginners’, Advanced and Masters’ modules.  Each is taught independently by professional and experienced Bartenders and Mixologists.  A Learner will receive a written attestation signifying the completion of each module.  Advancement to the next module may take place if the Learner passes a qualifying examination signifying the ability to comprehend the skills and knowledge given.  Upon completion of the three modules, a Diploma of Hospitality will be given in conjunction with an accredited Academic Institution.
