TRAINING & CAREERS
In order to participate in ABTT Training Courses you must have ABTT Membership. It is usually cheaper to join the ABTT first before booking any training. Should you have any questions about any of the courses or membership then simply contact us. Each course varies but you will obtain CPD certificates and/or a certified award.
The Bronze Award is run on-demand via peripatetic delivery. The course may be delivered anywhere within the UK and the ABTT would welcome interested theatres or organisations to act as a host venue .The only specialist requirement is the ability to fly scenery using hemp or counterweight. Please contact us if you are interested in having a Bronze Award Course at your venue.
