Working behind a bar is incredibly fun and is one of the most abundant jobs available in Melbourne. Whether you’re looking for full time work, or just looking for a few shifts while studying, it can be daunting to work behind a bar for the first time, and it can be difficult trying to find work behind the bar without any skills or experience. The Victorian Bar School offers a range of different courses that will give you the skills, the confidence and the qualifications to get work behind the bar. Our courses are comprehensive and will cover everything you need to know from tapping kegs and pouring beers to making cocktails and providing outstanding customer service. Having done the course, you will show employers that you not only have the basic skills to work behind the bar, but you have the right attitude to work behind the bar, which can be just as important.

In addition to learning the essential skills needed to work behind the bar, our Bartending course in Melbourne will also issue you with your RSA Melbourne certificate which is the qualification you need to serve alcohol in any licensed venue in Victoria. Furthermore, you will be also issued with a National RSA Certificate (SITHFAB021 Provide responsible service of alcohol), which is valid in some states outside of Victoria, so is ideal for travelling!

In addition to the nationally recognised unit of competence listed above, the following part modules are covered (a separate Victorian Bar School Certificate is issued for these subjects):
