If you have taken our International Bartender Course, you’ll have learnt the yellow level WFA (World Flair Association). This course is directed at bartenders with existing flair experience, a bartender with no experience will struggle. The course consists of 3 exciting rounds. The first two rounds, free pour and speed, will challenge your precision and pace. Final round is all about flair bartending which will test how impressive your skills are behind the bar.

To attend an EBS course you need to be 18 years old the moment the course starts. You can attend a course at EBS Kos or EBS Phuket if you are 17 years old and have your parent/guardian’s written permission.

If you are looking to take a course with EBS Las Vegas, EBS New York or EBS Miami you need to be 21 years old to be able to drink alcoholic drinks. You can attend a course in the USA if you are between 18 and 21 years old as you will still be able to learn all the elements of the course due to our training methods. If you are under 21 years old, you will not be able to take part in some of the organised events outside of school hours as they involve drinking alcoholic drinks.

You will need money for food and drinks at your destination. Some schools offer food packages so you can have your meals prepared and cooked for you at your destination, all for a great price.

The schools also arrange other activities for you to enjoy outside of school hours that incur a cost, it’s good to put some money aside for these as well.

The course price covers your industry-leading bartending education and study materials for the duration of your course. Most of our schools also arrange free activities for you to take part in, these activities differ between schools but you can check them out on the ‘Student Life’ tab.

Course programme

Flair Introduction
This is an introduction to flair bartending and its brief history, we say ‘brief’ as flair has only been a part of popular bar culture since around the 1980s. The introduction will cover flair safety, as spinning, flipping and catching bottles can obviously be dangerous. If you follow the simple safety guidelines, you’ll be fine. You’ll then study, working flair, exhibition flair, craft flair and their differences as well as how to use them behind the bar when making drinks.
Free Pour
The first practical round is a Free Pour round. You have to pour a selection of 13 pours including, chase pours and a flair pour.
Speed Round
As the title suggests this round is all about speed! You have to make a daiquiri, espresso martini and negroni within 2 min. The only catch is that you have to make them perfectly, you can’t forget any of the ingredients and they have to be presented as they would in a real bar.
Flair Bartending
Now things step up a gear. You have 4 minutes to make an Espresso Martini and Negroni and perform the allocated moves of the orange level, which are as follows:
  • Posluszny Double Napkin
