Frequently Asked Questions

Do you use real alcohol?
No, we do not - that would be prohibitively expensive! However, we do use simulated liquids, and all of the tools and equipment you'd find behind a real bar so your experience while training is authentic.
How old do you have to be to Bartend?
This varies from state to state, but in Indiana you must be 21 to work behind the bar.
What is the minimum age to attend the Bartending School?
Even though you must be 21 to bartend in Indiana, you only need to be 18 to attend our school.
Is Financial Aid available?
Yes! Here are just a few: Tuition aid for airline employees affected by the September 11, 2001 tragedies, Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) for all UAW, Approved through Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation, Goodwill, and other state grants available.
What happens if I don't pass?
First, we have a 97% graduation rate. However, if you don't pass your final (both hands-on and quiz) you are free to re-take the course and the exams as many times as you need to.
