Our informal sessions are adapted to cater for your individual needs, ensuring you leave fully prepared for your next show or event! These training days are open to anyone looking to extend their range of console knowledge. They are free of charge and generally run from 10am / 11am through to approx 4pm, with a light lunch included. Places must be booked in advance.

We regularly visit theatres, venues and schools to offer on-site training. Many customers find training in their own venue, with their own lighting rig, greatly advantageous. We can tailor the training sessions to fit your specific and individual needs. To find out about pricing and availability, please email training@zero88.com for more information.
