PPG has announced its Commercial Coatings training schedule for the fourth quarter of 2018. Classes cover a wide variety of subjects and are designed to ensure that paint technicians stay up to date with their commercial refinish certification and knowledge of PPG commercial coatings products, processes and technological advances.
Led by expert PPG trainers, the commercial coatings training classes are held at PPG Business Development Centers and numerous field locations across the U.S. and Canada. The courses take one to two days and provide extensive classroom instruction along with hands-on work in the spray booth. Technicians are given generous opportunities for informal discussions and Q&A sessions with the trainers.
Commercial training courses cover PPG premium brands including the Delfleet Essential®, Delfleet® Evolution and PPG commercial performance coatings (CPC) product lines, with certification and recertification offered for the Delfleet® family of products. Programs encompass a comprehensive range of topics from product selection, equipment and color tools to surface preparation and paint application best practices. Classes are also offered for PPG’s Adjustrite® commercial estimating system. Classes are available in Spanish and French in some locations.
PPG refinish technicians must be certified and then recertified every two years to make certain they stay current with ever-evolving industry developments. When PPG paint technicians and their respective collision centers are certified, the centers may offer the PPG Commercial Vehicle Paint Performance Warranty to their customers, providing a valued edge over the competition. Technicians must maintain their PPG certification in the Delfleet Essential® or Delfleet® Evolution paint line for the collision repair center to continue participating in the PPG commercial warranty program.
