Did you know that over 16,600 students participated in a PPG refinish training course in 2015—more than those trained by any other automotive paint company?

Training is essential to stay on top of new products, tools, and processes that are part of the growing complexity of new OEM finishes. And as the OEM’s continue to differentiate themselves with more and more unique finishes, it is critical that a painter continue to grow their skillset by becoming recertified every 2 years. Not only does this recertification allow a painter to stay current with the latest Refinish techniques, it is also required to maintain a collision center’s certification as well as a PPG-backed paint guarantee.

PPG’s Technician Certification Program includes 5 levels: Blue, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Master levels. When a technician follows this program and becomes recertified every 2 years, they strengthen their own skills while maintaining their shop’s competitive advantage.
