Bartenders looking to participate in the BAR Five-Day Certificate Program must now first successfully complete the BARSMARTS ADVANCED program beforehand. BAR’s core program is conducted once a year in New York State. It is delivered to bartenders in target markets through a kit that includes a selection of DVDs, a workbook, mixology equipment, and sample certification tests. The program culminates with BarSmarts LIVE! – a full day program of instruction, education, mixology, testing, and formal certification for the program’s top performers in each market. BarSmarts ADVANCED will travel to Boston in June.
