Summer School

Artifax Summer School Training Courses

We are so pleased to announce the launch of our brand new Summer School. Designed for a variety of job roles and users, we are sure to have a course (or courses) that would be suitable for you. We have designed a programme of course content to teach you the basics and advanced information, tips and hints to really help you bring your Artifax to life and ensure it is the central source of information for your venue. 

We have kept the attendee numbers lower for the more advanced courses so you have more of an opportunity to ask questions and really make the most out of your session. 

The sessions are available with a limited number of spaces, allocated on a first come, first serve basis. If you would like to attend please complete the course enquiry form and we will come back to you with the total cost for all your requested courses. 

Please note all the sessions will be held at 10:00 EST/ 14:00 UTC / 15:00 BST and run for two hours.
