Understand how the PTG Convention & Technical Institute works
From the outside a convention can be intimidating, but if you know how things are organized it can help make sense of it all.
Classes start on Wednesday and continue through Saturday. Classes are divided into periods and are, in most cases, available more than once just in case you have a scheduling conflict. There are four or five periods per day with short breaks in between periods. You don’t have to pre-register for most of the classes. They are included in your registration fee and you can set your own schedule. There are a few that have limited seating or an additional fee, but these are marked in the class descriptions and on the registration form.
The Institute Team has paid special attention to providing classes for every skill level. Designated skill levels for each class can be found just before the title of the class in the class descriptions. Skill levels are: (E) Everyone, (I) Intermediate, (B) Basic, (A) Advanced.
If you have any questions about classes, please drop by the Institute Office in Texas Special.
Usually open twice daily, the exhibit hall has something for every technician. It’s an opportunity to learn more about a product or a company before you make a purchase. Some of our exhibitors even have prizes. The PTG store offers a 10% discount on all cash and carry store items as well. Been holding off on buying some PTG apparel? This is your opportunity to save! The Exhibit Hall opens at noon on Wednesday and serves lunch.
