    Quite an open ended question...

    each cafe is different, duties vary, just barista or general hand, kitchen/barista/waiter etc...

    machines also vary massively, usually its all about grinding coffee correctly, dosing, tamping, locking into the machine, getting your milk on, making shiney not bubbly milk, free pouring the milk into the correct poured coffee shot, making the correct drink to standards, bit of latte art goes a long way, and all the time cleaning as you go...

    it depends on the cafe for standards, some here are disgusting, some are amazing...im on a quest to make mccafes amazing...but its a tough old job...

    About $170 at Tafe, but waiting list is pretty long to get on...or about $300 at private colleges, i recommend

    http://www.ahts.sa.edu.au

     

    Usually about 6 hours - but that just gets you a certificate, not the experience and most employers want experience...

    BP (wild bean cafe) actually offer some of the best training if youre after a job...coffee is included in the training etc...
