The experience I had at RBS was fantastic. I took the two week course, which was a pace that I felt was well balanced and very reasonable. The class is very hands on and is structured in a way that allows you to practice, practice, practice - which is of course probably the best way to learn how to bartend. Stephanie and Anthony both had a ton of extremely useful information, both on the material in the class and for bartending in the real world. They both really know they're stuff and are very approachable and friendly, and they are always available to answer any questions or provide clarification. Also, they have lots of funny stories. The class is very hands on and it's an exceptionally social environment. Everyone in all the classes was very cool, and we all learned together and helped each other during practice time, and we really enjoyed one another's company. The written test was relavant to the course material and practical test (making 12 drinks in 6 minutes) was a lot of fun. The whole class stayed for everyone's test, with us all cheering each other on. I would absolutely recommend RBS to anyone, whether they're looking for a career in bartending, some extra income, or just want to learn to have fun making drinks at home for themselves and friends. WIth my past service industry experience and the certificate I received, I found a job after I passed the course on the way home, the very same day.
