In this blog post, we will explore the steps to obtaining your balloon decorating certification and the benefits it brings to your career.













How to get your Balloon Decorating Certification?

Getting your balloon decorating certification is an exciting and rewarding process. At the Balloon Training Institute, we provide flexible options to accommodate your learning preferences. Whether you prefer hands-on experience or the convenience of online learning, we have a program that suits your needs.


You can choose to enroll in our in-person classes, where you'll have the opportunity to learn alongside experienced instructors and fellow balloon enthusiasts. The interactive nature of these classes allows for valuable hands-on practice and immediate feedback.


Alternatively, our online training services offer the flexibility to learn at your own pace, allowing you to balance your studies with other commitments. Our comprehensive online courses provide detailed video tutorials, resources, and support to ensure you receive the same quality education as our in-person classes.


Whichever learning option you choose, our goal is to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in the balloon decorating industry.



Our CBP Program and what it covers

Our CBP Program is designed to provide a comprehensive education in balloon artistry. It covers various aspects of balloon decorating to ensure you develop a well-rounded skill set. Here are some key areas covered in our program:

  • Balloon Design Techniques: Learn the fundamentals of balloon design, including color coordination, shape manipulation, and innovative arrangements.
  • Balloon Sculpting and Twisting: Master the art of sculpting balloons into intricate shapes, animals, and characters that will captivate any audience.

As part of the certification process, students are required to pass a final exam. This exam includes submitting pictures and videos showcasing your proficiency in balloon artistry. This practical assessment serves as proof of the skills and expertise you have acquired during the course.


One unique aspect of our CBP Program is that we are an independent association formed by past CBPs who offer lifetime support to new members. This means that you will have access to a supportive community of experienced professionals who are ready to provide guidance and assistance as you embark on your balloon decorating journey.


It's important to note that we do not require you to use a specific brand of balloons for your future work. We believe in your creativity and encourage you to explore various brands and products to find what works best for your unique style.


By completing our CBP Program and obtaining your certification, you will be well-equipped to launch a successful balloon decorating business or pursue various opportunities in the balloon art industry.
