Retake Policy

The Fine Art Bartending Guarantee

The Fine Art Bartending Guarantee is that you will be a great bartender at the end of the Commercial Bartending Program. If you don’t feel confident at the end of the 8 days or if you want to brush up on your skills in the future, you can retake the program.

How it works

Students must email to join the waitlist for an upcoming program. Students can only retake a class if there are available seats in the class. Priority is given to new students. Retakes are assigned on a first come, first served basis.

Retakes are confirmed 24 hours before the class starts. It is your responsibility to email us 24 hours before class to confirm if your seat is available.


It is free for eligible students to retake the Commercial Bartending Program. However, you will be required to pay a textbook fee of $50 on the first day of class. If you still have the up-to-date version of the textbook, no fee applies.


Students who attended Fine Art Bartending School Vancouver are eligible to retake the program. If you took the program at another location, you are not eligible to retake it. The schools do not have any connection with one another. Note that we only have records dating back five years. You can only retake the program if you are in our system or have proof you have taken the program, shown through a photo of your certificate or course textbook. Please email us the photo in your request to enroll.


Students who did not start or complete at least five days of the program are not eligible to retake the class. That means if you miss more than three days of class, you are ineligible. Exceptions apply if you have emailed us in advance of missing classes. If your request to retake the program is approved and you do not show up, you will be disqualified from ever retaking the program.
