Proof & Company is looking to further help Australia’s bartending community by offering free access to the online learning platform JERRY.

Inspired by Jerry Thomas, the father of modern bartending, JERRY is an industry-leading education program in beverage service and hospitality, provides comprehensive, engaging, results-driven online instruction and take away activities.

Budding learners in Australia and New Zealand can now access Level One Beverage and Hospitality Certificate Program for free by using one of these promo codes:

  • ProofMEL
  • ProofSYD
  • ProofNZ

Proof & Co said this support is in aid of the individuals affected by COVID to upskill their development in the Food & Beverage industry while they have this downtime. Or, for those returning to work, looking to improve their knowledge and skill-set.

Charlie Ainsbury, Australia’s Head of Creative Services at Proof & Company and JERRY Professor, told Bars and Clubs: “JERRY is passionate about education. Our goal is to help develop beverage professionals, provide venue owners and managers with an intuitive, practical e-learning solution and to ultimately create a rich culture of learning in venues.

“This pandemic has kept us inside, out of our bars and away from our guests. It has been devastating for our industry; we have lost our community. By making this platform free for operators and staff, we hope that this downtime can be used productively, keeping the cogs turning.

“We hope it encourages engagement and brings back that sense of community.”

The JERRY Certification Program covers a wide range of topics including beverage, hospitality, preparation, operation, leadership, ethics and strategy. To keep learners engaged, two new JERRY Certificated Programs are released each month.
