California Bartending School


27-year-old Khang Phung from San Jose, CA 95136, was looking to learn new skills that would bring him extra income. After researching different options, he found one of the most popular bartending programs in California: the 'Bartending & Mixology - 35 Hour Certification Elite Course.' Despite his busy schedule, the option to take in-home private lessons was a perfect fit.
Khang was paired with certified bartending instructor Charles F., who taught him to craft California's most popular cocktails, including the Mai Tai, Tequila Sunrise, Appletini, Pisco Punch, and San Jose favorite Tommy's Margarita. After passing the certification exam, Khang received an offer from his instructor to help serve at weddings and parties in the area, setting him on a path to success in the bartending industry.
