real bartending, real skills, real advantage: maximize your earnings with toronto bar school's hands-on bartender training

By Toronto Bar School, 3/28/2023

There’s a good reason why we don’t hire plumbers that learn their trade in a classroom with zero experience in the field. Who wants someone taking apart their toilet to find a clog that’s never had to do it in a real home?

I know I don’t.

We want a plumber with experience in real situations through an apprenticeship program.

There’s just no substitute for actual on-the-job training.

Why should bartending be any different?

The short answer is it’s not.

The most successful pros, making the most money, have extensive hands-on bartender training.

Let’s dive in and look at why learning real world skills with Toronto Bar School will allow you to maximize your earning potential.

The toronto bar school difference

So, just want sets us apart? Why is our training system any better than the next guys? Good questions.

It starts with a difference in philosophy.

We don’t just teach you how to pour a few drinks and mix a couple of fancy cocktails. We teach you how to become a standout mixologist – a true expert at crafting tasty liquid experiences your patrons will never forget.

How do we do that?

It all comes back to our hands-on bartender training approach.

We believe that there’s no substitue for learning by doing. This belief is backed up by study after study which shows that hands on learning is more effective at any age level.

That’s why our classroom places you behind a real bar. not in a stuffy classroom. Our tools are the same ones you’ll be using when you graduate and our trainers are industry experts with invaluable lessons to teach you.

Theory is for math majors, not bartenders. Our goal is to shape real-world bartenders that can handle any situation thrown at them – even at the busiest events.

Real skills learned outside of the classroom really do make a difference. Here’s why.

why real skills matter

I’d actually take it a step further. Real skills don’t just matter when it comes to bartending, they’re your currency of success.

You might be able to craft a passible cocktail after a few lessons in a classroom, but it probably won’t make you stand out behind a real bar and pull in the biggest tips.

Besides, bartending is about more than just crafting okay cocktails, you need to know how to handle difficult customers and manage well in a fast paced bar setting, with drink orders being fired at you from every angle.

You just can’t learn these skills in a classroom.

As any graduate of our program will tell you, real-world skills make all the difference.

It just make sense..

If you’ve been learning behind a live bar from day one of your training, you’ll be better prepared to earn once you’ve finished the program.

It all starts with a solid curriculum.

Let me explain.

expert curriculum perfected through hands-on bartender training

Let me be clear, our hands-on bartender training program is built on a proven curriculum. We’re not just throwing you behind a live bar and letting you sink or swim on your own.

As long as you show up when you’re supposed to, come ready with a great attitude and killer work ethic, we’ll bring an advance system that will provide you with a detailed roadmap to bartending success.

We cover everything from bartending to bar management. Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll learn:

Bar management – An overview and tips for operational issues such as inventory control

It isn’t just the curriculuum that sets us part though, it’s our expert team.

Let me explain.

expert instructors

We could have the best curriculum in the world, but if we didn’t have a reliable team to practice what we preach, we wouldn’t be providing you value for money.

Not to worry though, our expert trainers are some of the best in the business.

Each brings with them a wealth of knowlwdge and above all, a passion for bartending you won’t find anywhere else.

I can tell you, I wish I had this team in my corner when I was first starting out on the bartender scene.

Their expertise isn’t built on a basic understanding of theory. Sure, that’s part of it, but they also have the hands-on experience to match and they’re dedicated to sharing their knowledge and inspirational techniques with students ready to learn from the best.

They’ll provide you with guidance and mentorship with the end goal of teaching you how to become an expert bartender of the highest level.

If you want to be the best at anything you need to learn from the best. That’s what you can expect from Tornoto Bar School.

gain real-world experience

By now you probably have a good idea of how much value we place on real-world experience, but we can’t say it enough. If you want to shine in this industry, you need to know what it’s like to work behind a real bar.

Think of us as your way to bridge the gap between the classroom and the bar.

At Toronto Bar School these are both the same thing.

We’re not going to throw you out in the real world to search for a bartending gig after mixing some colored water. You’ll graduate with tons of practical experience already under your belt.

The best part?

You won’t have to worry about searching for a job.

Here’s what I mean by that.

The majority of classroom based bartending courses train you and cut you loose. It’s up to you to convince someone to hire you as a bartender.

That’s not the Toronto Bar School way.

When you graduate successfully from our program, there’ll be instant employment waiting for you on the other side.

It’s true.

We don’t just provide you with access to world-class expert trainers and an industry leading curriculum – we hire you to work with us staffing exclusive events when you successfully complete the program.

If I’d told you at the begining of this article that the price of our program is $500 you might have hesitated at the cost.

Now that you know that we give you hands-on bartender training in a real-world setting, led by industry experts and we have a job waiting for you at the end of the course we’re guessing that seems like a minimal investment for the value you’ll get out of it.
