Current Courses

SMA Training is aimed specifically at Stage Managers wishing to update or enhance their skills. Courses are open to both SMA Members and non-members.

SMA Professional and Graduate members automatically receive a discount on courses run directly by the SMA. Members may also apply for extra Training Support Vouchers.

All of the SMA-run courses lead to a certificate of achievement from the SMA, include course notes/materials and, if you are a Professional SMA Member, completion of many courses can be added to the TAP Card to Monday 30th September 2019which you are entitled.

All SMA Courses and most others finish by 4.30pm to allow for evening show calls. Earlier times or one-to-one courses can sometimes be arranged. Please register your interest in a course as soon as possible, to allow us to plan the logistics and confirm details as soon as possible.
