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 .

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.
