Balloon decorating training for beginners:

For beginners, we introduce the Qualatex Fundamentals course, the benchmark course for the Balloon Professional. This course is beneficial to both retailers and decorators starting a professional balloon business.  This  is a ‘hands-on’ course that integrates the foundational aspects of the balloon business and includes balloon inflation methods, how to make arches, columns, making balloon arrangements and pricing. 

When you complete the Fundamentals course, you may proceed to book further “tailor-made”  courses which will help you become a confident balloon professional, concentrating on specific skills you may wish to develop.

Balloon decorating training for intermediate/advanced learners:

We also offer personalised training for intermediate  learners who may wish to further develop their skills or boost their confidence in tackling specific aspects of decorating with Balloons.
