More information about the program is here.

Illinois LIQUOR CONTROL COMMISSION

BassetBASSET certification is required in Cook County and most counties in Illinois. As of July 2018, certification will be mandatory statewide. If you are just looking to receive your BASSET certification or if you just need to recertify, but do not want to take the bartending course, we can do that too! There are BASSET classes every month at each of our locations! Call us at the above numbers for dates and times!

ABC is the largest privately-owned bartending school system in the United States. Tony Sylvester has owned bartending schools and has been placing bartenders nationwide since 1977.

Bartenders are known for their ability to make great money while meeting new people and having lots of fun at their jobs. Look around you at the number of liquor serving establishments and the number of bartenders (full time and part time) that it takes to staff these establishments.

Our bartending school program prepares students to have the skill sets and brand knowledge and brand awareness, that can take years of experience to acquire. Our training curriculum allows for students to use a variety schedules to fit their busy life styles. This why students choose ABC Bartending Schools and succeed!
