"I decided to do the online course before taking the 4-week course in New York because I had no bartending experience and wanted to have some knowledge before I started. I’m SO happy I did it because It was really useful and helped me keep up with the instructors and my coursemates."

"I’ve been a bartender for a while but I took this course to improve my skills so I can do better in my career. Everyone at work noticed a difference when I finished it, my techniques improved a lot and I was inspired to create my own cocktails. I always go back and watch it when I practise at home."

I’ve had loads of cocktail parties where I invite my friends round and make them drinks and I’ve had 5-star reviews all round!"
