The Commercial Coatings division of PPG has released its training class schedule for the second quarter of 2018 — April, May and June. Classes will be held across the U.S. and Canada at PPG Business Development Centers and various additional field locations. They are designed to ensure that paint technicians stay up to date with the continuous technological advances of PPG products.

PPG commercial training covers the Delfleet Essential® and Delfleet® Evolution brands along with other popular PPG commercial performance coatings (CPC) product lines. Classes are also offered for PPG’s AdjustRite® commercial estimating system.

Expert PPG instructors and trainers lead the one- or two-day classes that include lectures, group discussions and Q&A sessions along with hands-on time in the paint booth.

A partial list of upcoming PPG commercial coatings courses includes:

  • Delfleet Essential® Certification and Recertification
  • Delfleet® Evolution Certification and Recertification
  • Delfleet® Evolution Spot Repair and Color Tinting
  • Commercial Truck Estimating
  • Commercial Performance Coatings Product Technologies
  • Amercoat® Product and Marketing

PPG training is the most extensive in the commercial coatings industry. Classes cover topics ranging from an overview of commercial coatings, product selection, color tools and equipment to surface preparation and paint application best practices. The unique requirements of commercial fleets are also reviewed. In addition, technicians receive instruction on the business side of the refinish process and the efficient use of commercial coatings to boost productivity, profitability and refinish quality while raising customer satisfaction.

As noted above, classes for certification in the use of Delfleet Essential® and Delfleet® Evolution products are also offered. PPG technicians must be certified every two years. When PPG technicians and their respective commercial collision centers are certified, the centers may qualify for participation in the PPG Commercial Vehicle Paint Performance Warranty program.

Classes are available in French or Spanish in some locations. Full course descriptions, dates, locations and registration instructions can be found here or by calling (800) 647-6050. Classes fill quickly and early registration is encouraged.
