Event Management Training

Last updated January 11th, 2021

Do I really need to get some event management training?

Why don’t I just dive straight into the industry, do a freelance, part time or even unpaid role. Surely it makes more sense to learn on the job rather than taking time out to invest in training.

The age old question over the benefits of learning vs experience… to which there is obviously no definitive answer. However, it’s worth understanding the value that those who do take the event management training route perceive to have gained, over those who choose the shortcut. Lets have a look at some of the benefits.

“When a student comes to work for us they need to be ready to go. Events don’t hang around and mistakes can be very costly on a live project. We can’t afford to spend 3 months retraining a graduate…they need to be able to contribute on day one” – Jim Curley, MD M-is

The advantages of training with Event Academy are that we offer a blend of practical, hands on training courses alongside the experience of actually working in an event planning work placement. Our postgraduate courses take individuals through a twelve week, intensive course which will give you the best practical learning in the industry coupled up with a three month placement working with an agency, venue, charity or organising company events.

As a result the event management training that students receive addresses the dilemma of training vs experience by combining both. The event market is crying out for skilled, experienced professionals to fill the key event planner/producer roles. Yes there is a place for seasoned event professionals, but as the market and technology changes… so does the need for candidates with relevant experience and some fresh young blood bringing plenty of energy and passion. Event Management is typically a young persons game!

The best available event management training provides a real kick start into a career in events. We passionately believe that The EventCourse gives you a practical blend of (CIM accredited) training courses with work experience, thereby giving students the best chance of meaningful work. The EventCourse gives you training that provides an experience of your future.

All our live courses are based in and run from Central London. As well as being an exciting and dynamic city to be studying in London is also the event capital of the world. In particular the last year alone has seen London hosting some of the world’s biggest events including the Royal Wedding, Wimbledon, the British Grand Prix and of course, the Olympics and Paralympics.

Why do Event Management Training instead of just getting experience on the job?
