What is a Certified Balloon Artist?

Yes, we have Balloon Certifications, who knew?!

A Certified Balloon Artist (CBA for short), is a professional Balloon Artist who passed a series of classes and final practicum in front of a panel of Qualatex judges.

These courses include

  • Balloon Theory
  • Design
  • Equipment
  • Safety
  • Customer Service
  • Pricing for Profit

A Certified Balloon Artist must pass all prerequisite tests on their own time and then complete the required 4 hour practicum at a predetermined Balloon Convention or Conference.  There the prospective CBA’s will show off their skills creating helium bouquets, columns, and centerpieces.  They will also be quized on design theory and do a mock phone call or delivery.  Altogether, the panel grades on knowledge, proficiency, speed, style, and customer service skills.

I, Jules Perkovic, CBA, am the founder of Party Perks.  In January 2019 I recieved my CBA at the International Balloon Decor Convention, FLOAT.

This is one of my favorite Balloon conventions.!

I find pride in having those 3 letters come after my name.   It is important to me and Party Perks to continue to invest in my knowledge in Balloons and Business.  Therefore, I make sure to be a part of continual online learning, as well as attend in person Balloon Conferences each year.  This way I can provide the absolute best for my customers while feeling proud of my work.  Quality has always been important to me
