Training Seminars

Bale Band-It Training Seminars are a great way to get a hands on course to understand the Bale Band-It from those who know it best.

NOTE: Due to Covid-19 we have had to suspend in-person training seminars for the time being.

We hope to have them available again soon.

A video recording of a recent seminar is available on our Online Support page.
