aBOUT US - Learn From The Professionals

Professional Bartending Schools of America is a nationwide group of individually owned and operated, state-licensed bartending schools in the USA.

We don't believe that being a professional bartender is a job that can be learned by video, online program or at home sitting on your couch! We work hard to fully prepare our graduates for a career in mixology, whether it be at a nice local neighborhood bar or the fanciest hotel or nightclub in town. Their success is our companies reputation!

Professional Bartending Schools of America now includes 36 state-licensed bartending schools nationwide. Our 36 bartender schools trained over 10,000 bartenders in 2009. We view a bartender's job as a professional career and only offer hands-on training behind a fully-equipped bar in a permanent school facility.

We offer one, two and five week bartending courses during the day, evening and weekends. PBSA offers our graduates local, nationwide and online job placement assistance. Our classes include Anheuser-Busch and Guinness beer training, along with responsible alcohol certification.

Working as a professional bartender is a fun and exciting career that appeals to all ages. Our student base is made up of those looking to better their career, college students wanting part-time fun work, and the professional career worker who wants to supplement their income, or just get out and have some fun.

The President of our company, Roger Oldham, is a four-time winner of the best bartender in Ohio contest, and has twice finished in the top ten in the world at Disney's "Quest for the Best Bartender in the World" contest held each year in Orlando, Florida.

Many bartending schools make claims, but we back ours up with a proven background in the food and beverage industry.

This year, our newest campuses are New York City and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The New York Bartending School, Inc. has campuses in Manhattan, Long Island and in Fort Lauderdale. They take great pride in having professional, well-equipped classrooms and full-time job placement directors. As with all PBSA schools, the New York Bartending School strives to maintain high standards in quality education and successful placement of their graduates! We welcome them to our group.
