ABF Teacher Training Workshops
The ABF offers teacher training events around Australia each year to help new bridge teachers prepare for their first lesson and inspire current teachers with new ideas. These free workshops, which are made possible by the ABF and the state bridge associations, aim to provide teachers with the necessary skills to run successful bridge lessons and help with play sessions.
To book your place in our Online Workshops click on the event title. You will then be able to enter your details. When you register online, it allows us to send you the link and meeting details for the Online Workshop. After the event, you will receive an email certificate and notification of your current accreditation points.
Each Online Workshop is limited to 20 people to ensure it is an effective lesson for all participants.

These events may also be considered for inclusion in the ABF Teacher Accreditation Program. This means accreditation points would be awarded to teachers who attend eligible professional development activities.
