Balloon and party association NABAS has got the year off to a strong start by launching a new training programme for 2020 and beyond.
The balloon and party trade association has given its training programme a full and thorough transformation and is excited to be launching it ready for the 2020 season.
One of the primary aims of NABAS has always been to ensure independent training, offering balanced information and full transparency, with an introduction to a full range of products from various manufacturers.
At over 30 years old, the original NABAS course has been revamped to reflect the modern marketplace, which is full of unaccountable free videos and an abundance of balloon courses by different instructors of all levels.
“We needed our instructors to undergo a transformation,” said Liz Williams, head of NABAS training. “The learners’ needs had to come first. Every course is assessed and lesson planned, with a strong focus placed on evaluation standards aimed at assisting and supporting instructors to improve and ultimately support all learners.”
Liz has been working hard with committee and instructors to ensure NABAS leads the way on quality and educational standards, giving both approved instructors and learners a strong foundation for growth and development.
The new Level 1 balloon and business basics course now ensures tips, techniques, calculations and job costing are fully covered, alongside principles and elements of designs, basic marketing, bouquets, garlands and arches. It also now includes a fabulous glossy, colour manual packed full of information.
Level 2 is currently in development and will be relaunched later this year, bringing the classic techniques into the 20s.
