We also offer fun and profitable employment placements for our most talented trainees to give them valuable work experience.

We believe that the best way to learn how to be an efficient, professional bartender is through hands-on experience and lots of opportunity for repeated practice.

Students take a written and practical exam on the last day of the class. Those students with the highest scores will be offered guest appearances behind the bar with Académie August collaborator, Tabascobar.

8. What do students receive at the end of the course?

Students receive certification at the end of all of our courses, stating what subject they have trained in and for how many hours. Students also have the possibility, depending on their potential and current openings, of securing employment at Académie August collaborating bar – Tabascobar.

9: What happens if a student doesn’t pass the final exam?

Students who do not pass the final exam can take the exam again for a fee of $25.00.
