Q Can I really learn all the handbag restoration services or become a qualified technician after just 4 days training?


A Our course is one of the most successful in the Bag Restoration business - it has been designed to demonstrate and teach all handbag restoration services over the 4 Day Course, the student will have physically carried out all of those services during their training. Despite been open to all levels of students, it's a serious commercial training program with an ultimate goal of ensuring the student can operate professionally as a handbag restoration specialist. Please note, the student must also allow for an average of 4 weeks home practice after completing the course, honing the skills and techniques learned during training. This time period varies from person to person but combined with our post training tech support, our student has everything needed to enter this business commercially. Most of our Pro Course students go on to become very successful handbag restoration specialists, whether that be an individual working from home or those setting up their own restoration business from commercial premises.

A Our Bangkok facility is located in the heart of the city, beside the Asoke intersection. However, the Bangkok centre runs to a schedule so the fixed course dates may not be suitable to everyone. Lopburi is much more flexible in terms of dates and we also offer special packages for Lopburi, that include all accommodation and transport during training. CONTACT US for more information
