If you are trawling through Google looking for the best course available, you may, by now, be a bit confused!

Obviously we would love you to choose to study with us but whoever you choose we are happy to offer you the following advice:

Look for a well established training provider with industry accreditation. – Check out the tutors experience – Don’t be afraid to ask what Teaching qualifications the tutors hold, you should look for a teaching qualification such as DTLLS, PGCE, City & Guilds, BTEC or OCN amd dont forget to check out the tutors achievements within the Balloon & Party Industry, Who have they taught for and what awards have they won etc…

Beware of companies who promise to teach you everything in just one day, in order to learn effectively you will need time to study the individual designs, learn to recreate them yourself, and understand how they can be adapted for different circumstances. If a training provider is suggesting that becoming a balloon artist is a ‘Get Rich Quick’ opportunity then please be assured that this job requires hard work and determination, however, what we can promise you is that it will be exciting, fun and very rewarding!


Make sure whoever you choose is a member of the Qualatex Balloon Network and is insured through either  BAPIA or NABAS
