Bartending Course Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in the cost of the BartenderOne Masterclass Bartending Course?

EVERYTHING! The BartenderOne MasterClass is the most complete bartending course in the industry. All workshops, tastings, handbooks and supplies are included in the cost. For even more additional value, you will receive your mandatory Smart Serve Certification for a fraction of the cost. As a MasterClass student you will pay only $20.00, rather than the full workshop fee of $65.00!

Where are the Bartending Schools Located?

Our head office is located at 95 King Street East in Toronto, but our bartender training facilities are located across the province. BartenderOne Bartending Schools are conveniently located in Mississauga, Toronto Club district, Toronto Yorkville district, Ottawa and coming soon to Montreal. We believe that a mobile classroom that fits into a working bar environment is the most effective way to train.

So when I register for a bartending course with BartenderOne I get to train in a working bar not a simulated classroom?

That's right. We believe the most accurate simulation is the real thing! We also believe that you shouldn't have to travel for miles to get to your bartending school. Chances are there's a BartenderOne near you!

How much will I make when I get a bartending job?

Bartending is like any other line of work. You cant expect to walk onto the bar and get the rockstar shifts, making the top dollars from the get go. The BartenderOne Masterclass Bartender Certification is designed to give you the tools you need to get into the big money faster. Suffice it to say a good bartender can make in one night what others make in a full week!

What if I miss one of the classes? Can I make it up?
