BarSmarts Wired: Professional Bartender Training Online

barsmarts_tools.jpgWe got an invite a while back to take a class called BarSmarts Wired, the online version of the BarSmarts Advanced seminars for professional bartenders. We've heard good things about the program, but after the summer we had, it had slipped our minds. It took a well-written (and positive) review from Colleen at to jog our memories, and sign up for the online course.

Besides the knowledge, skills and theory that you get from BarSmarts Wired, you receive with your tuition a bag filled with professional bar tools. This bar set is a pretty nice one, not some cheap freebie, and includes a Boston shaker, jiggers, a bar spoon, strainers and a very nice zester. The set alone exceeds what you would pay $42 for and since that is the price of the course.

This is one of the few online bartender programs that is worth the time and effort. You will learn a lot and be able to bring that to your bar to improve customer service.

You've still got a few days to sign up at the BarSmarts Website, and don't forget to read Colleen's review to get some tips if you're planning to do it. And if you need some more convincing, check out Pernod Ricard's video demo about the program - just remember you have to sign up before the end of September if you're going to do it.

(Big ups to Colleen Graham and Samantha Harrigan for giving us info about the program)

Looks a bit short, but if you don't already have the bar tools, by all means, sign up immediately, as LS said, given the price, the actual course is essentially free.

My only question is if they are going to gradually introduce more intermediate skill levels for those like me that aren't really cocktail drinkers, but already know the basics.

I'll think about it, might just give it a go.:)
