Basic Training

Learn the fundamentals of visualization and keep building your skills.


Come with us into the world of visuals!

Whether you are a beginner “with two left hands” or self-taught – a bikablo basics training is the springboard for you into the wonderful world of visual thinking.

More than a thousand participants worldwide attend our 2-day basics course each year. In a small group of like-minded people, our trainers provide individualized feedback and support to address your unique learning needs. When appropriate, we divide the learning group into teams at different levels. After two days of training with us, you’ll come to the realization that, “I can visualize – and use it in my job tomorrow!”

After completing the training, you can keep the momentum going by enrolling in one of our video courses or an online “e-xtraClass” program (which is exclusively for graduates of our basics training).
