If you’re looking to gain some bartender skills to improve your opportunities in hospitality, the ITS Bar Skills Course is for you.

Conducted over 2 evenings (or sometimes during the day), this hands-on training is regularly available at several convenient locations, including Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

This course is run in real clubs or hotels where we have arrangements to use their Bar and facilities. The blend of learning and practising within a real bar environment, ensures you’ll receive the most relevant training and preparation for your next hospitality role.

Bartender Skills Course Format:

Day One: Hands-on skills training behind the bar

Day Two: Bar Skills knowledge training
In-person RSA or RSG training (select preference on enrolment)
For those already with both, you can elect to do day one only.

Accreditation Included In Your Bar Skills Course

The units within this Bar Skills course are accredited within the National Training framework and you are actually doing several of the Units from Certificate II in Hospitality. Upon passing the course you will receive your Statement of Attainment (partial completion Certificate II).

The Units are: Use hygienic practices for food safety (SITXFSA001) and Responsible Service of Alcohol (SITHFAB002). Responsible Gambling Services (SITHGAM001) is a unit you can add on optionally.

However, just as important is that you will be in a training group with similar minded people who are wanting to get the required bar skills to get working in the industry. The atmosphere is relaxed and you will have ample opportunity to hone your skills of beer pouring, bar/table service, cocktails and mixed drinks and hygiene issues.
