Founded in 2001, Bartenders Association Internationale was established to provide online training and certification programs to make it easier for professionals to advance in their chosen careers in bartending, food service and hospitality industries.
Forged by its vision to maintain a model of achievable educational excellence, recognized for its convenience, effectiveness and application in preparing for a job, BAI offered its first online training program – Certified Bartender® which has been its core training model now for over 10 years.
In response to a growing interest from its students to learn more about wine, BAI expanded its offering leading to the creation of the Certified Wine Expert® program in 2010.
Bartenders Association International faculty has agreed that by using self-paced online and distance learning techniques adapted to its programs, all motivated candidates can achieve the following:
Build knowledge through training
Gain confidence to grab competitive job opportunities
Reach career goals
The Certified Bartender and Certified Wine Expert programs are available to anyone seeking fast, effective and affordable training.
BAI programs provide students with the core knowledge required to work not only in service positions but a variety of careers related to bartending, wine, food service and hospitality industries.
