New York Bartending Certification

New York State Law Requires Bartenders to be Only 18
The best part about being a bartender in NYC is the leniency in its alcoholic laws. Alcohol cannot be consumed only from 4:00 am to 8:00 am in some states and the rest of the day is all yours to visit any pub or bar you want. All you have to do is get the required training with the help of Local Bartending School (LBS) and give the exam to get the certificate. Some famous cities of New York City are Albany, Buffalo, Syracuse and Rochester and there are 56 more.

The minimum age to become a bartender in New York is 18. However, state law requires drinkers to be 21.


The NY Certification Exam Takes 30 Minutes
The exam is taken under the supervision of an examiner even though you take the course online. The test takes almost 30 minutes and there is a fee for this exam. The training is so extensive that the students actually get to sit at the bars where the qualified instructors show how to prepare all kinds of drinks and beverages so that they practically learn it.

New York’s Two Types of Courses
You can also take on and off-premise course.

On-premise serving course can be taken if you are working at a bar or restaurant. The off-premise responsible serving course can be taken if you are working in a convenience store, liquor store, or other off-premises sales business.
