Here is the issue with “other” bartending schools. You cannot learn how to bartend by reading a textbook. It’s not just about knowing the ingredients in a drink; it’s about knowing how to pour fast, accurate and being able to keep your cool no matter how packed your bar is. This is how we train at aurora.
Our instructors have more high volume experience than any other school. Our staff is young and still active in the industry. Odds are; if you’ve been out at any of the popular clubs around here, you’ve already seen us in action. We’re still out there, we’re still making money, and we’re still doing what we love. It’s our passion for this industry that brings us to teach, not necessity.
Show up to any popular bar or nightclub around here and hand the manager your student profile card. There’s a 99.9% chance that they know one of our staff members, or have at least heard about Aurora and the type of bartenders we produce. If they don’t, they will type your ID number in online and view you in action. Either way, they’ll have everything they’ll need to make a decision about you right in front of them.
WE ARE THE NEW STANDARD IN THE BAR SERVICE INDUSTRY
“Trainers by Day – Bartenders By Night”
Aurora Bartending trainers have extensive experience in all aspects of the bartending profession, yet, are young enough to still be active and well known in the bar and night-life community. We are “In the middle of it all” when it comes to the latest drinks, venues, and parties. The night-life and bar industry is an ever-evolving animal. Unfortunately the role and skills of a bartender are being watered down from generation to generation largely due to these “average” bartending schools that focus more on handing you a piece of paper stating that you’re officially a bartender, instead of actually training you how to become a good one. At Aurora, it is our mission to rebuild this industry from the ground up.
The “get ’em in, get ’em out” policy does not apply to Aurora Bartending students. After finishing an extensive training course, Aurora students will be expected to legitimately pass both the written and practical final exams in under 3 attempts or be asked to attend additional classes. Ensuring that our students graduate with extensive experience is how Aurora Bartending Schools continue to keep their good reputation.
We only accept 8 students maximum per class. This ensures that every student gets equal time behind the bar as well as uncompromised access to the instructor. We have 8 bar stations that include: digital workstations that power our “Aurora Speed Drills”, cash registers with bar P.O.S. Systems and a state of the art sound system to simulate a bar / nightclub environment.
Whoever said “You can’t mix business with pleasure”, has no business talking about business, or pleasure. The most important aspect of Aurora Bartending School is having fun. With young, personable instructors, energetic music, and plenty of optional networking parties / events, there is never a dull moment.
