Training for tuners in partnership with Venues
Tailor made training packages
In today’s piano world there are limited opportunities for tuners and technicians to receive high level training. Though there are still some apprenticeships, a few college courses and a handful of manufacturer sponsored refresher courses, there are few training programs which are specifically designed to fit the needs of individuals or groups of tuners / technicians who wish to up-skill in specific areas.
Whether a music conservatoire or retail chain, many organisations around the world have difficulty finding tuners and technicians to provide quality day to day service. To send tuners and technicians overseas for training, whether it is basic training or advanced up-skilling, can often be impractical or unaffordable. GPS can to bring training to you, and by teaching groups of technicians rather than focusing on individuals, this teaching can be both practical and affordable.
At GPS we are able to put together training programs for up to 6 individuals at a time. These programs involve a combination of our technician(s) coming to you periodically, an element of distance learning and also the added possibility of individuals coming to us for additional experience.
Although this type of training is not a real substitute for a comprehensive full time apprenticeship or lengthy full time intensive course, for a venue or shop which sees the benefit of its tuners receiving excellent teaching which is specifically focussed on specific areas, these GPS courses can be hugely beneficial.
