Distributor Technical Representative Certification (DTRC) Program

Available exclusively to PPG Platinum Distributors, the forward-thinking Distributor Technical Representative Certification (DTRC) program is designed to strengthen the caliber and problem-solving skills of your technical representatives. Beginning with a comprehensive evaluation process, DTRC candidates are assessed in all key areas of refinish repair and their industry knowledge and then performance skills are verified.

Developed through a collaborative effort between PPG and Platinum Distributors, the DTRC program consists of two equally important phases: Online Basic Knowledge Assessment and a rigorous two-day Hands-on Performance Evaluation.

After successfully completing the two educational requirements of this program, the distributor technical representative earns elite status as a Certified Distributor Technical Representative.
