At Crescent, one of our top priorities is to help each student succeed; we take assisting you in finding a good bartending or casino job to heart. And, because we're the only nationally-accredited school of its kind in the country, governed by ACCET, we have to maintain an exemplary placement record to remain accredited. Getting certified from Cresent means you'll be considered "the cream of the crop" from the first day you apply to bars, hotels, restaurants, resorts, and casinos in your chosen geographic area. We also work with cruise ships and with international casinos across the globe.
To encourage networking, we introduce you to the influencers in the industry by hosting special events such as small-group private talks (by some of the greats in the gaming and mixology business), concerts, field trips, food and beer fests, and charity events. Although we do not guarantee job placement, we are fully committed to finding jobs for our graduates. Hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, and casinos call Crescent Schools when they need bar staff and casino dealers.
