We have been operating since 1968. We are the most established and well-known bartending school in the DC, MD, VA region. When people think about bartending schools in the DC, Virginia, Maryland area they refer to the Professional Bartending School. We are often described as the DC Bartending School.
Graduates land bartender jobs. We prove it. We have published who gets jobs, where, and when consistently since mid 2009. No other bartending school dares to do this. In 2010 our bartender school grads landed about 1200 bartender jobs. It occurred again in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. Its evidence of an active bartender job placement assistance program that actually works.
