PBSAONLINE Quality Bartender Training Online
The PBSA Bartending School Online
Welcome to Professional Bartending Schools of America online bartending school! Our online bartending school was designed as a teaching tool for our students in our brick and mortar bartending schools.

PBSA has 34 bartending school locations nationwide and trains over 10,000 professional bartenders each year. The PBSA online bartending school is now offered for four main purposes.

Study Aid - The learning at PBSA doesn't stop when you go home! After class each day, you may go home and login to our online bartending virtual university and see each drink you learned that day prepared again. Test your understanding of that day's lesson by using our interactive online quiz module.

Hybrid course - Some of our schools are now offering a hybrid program where the student takes a predetermined number of class hours online from the comfort of their own home.

They watch the videos of our instructors preparing and explaining each and every drink on their computer monitor. They then must attend the school to make the drinks in front of our instructors and get plenty of practice time.

Online Alternative - For those students who live in a city where PBSA does not have a brick and mortar bartending school. PBSA always recommends that a prospective student take their bartending class in a traditional PBSA school if available. There is no substitute for hands-on experience behind an actual bar.

Experienced Staff - For those already employed in the food and beverage industry. Our online bartending course is a great way to learn cocktail recipes, professional methods, call brands, garnishes and more.

Bartenders can take their skills to a higher level and wait staff can learn the correct glassware, garnishes and flavors. Just the ticket to move from waitning tables to working behind the bar.

Our online school has been professionally designed and produced inhouse to maintain the quality of our product offered. The videos were professionally filmed and are the same ones we now use in our bartending schools to train new instructors as well as offer video makeup lessons to the students.
