Having graduated from a bartending school myself, I appreciate the work they do. Bartending schools are effective at teaching things like basic mixology, liquor knowledge, service basics, and mechanics such as freepour. The irony is that you can generally learn in your first week on the job much of what you learned in a couple weeks at school. However, the best thing about a bartending school is that they will often help you get your first job, which can be worth the price of tuition in a competitive market.
