Collision refinish courses set for April, May and June will cover PPG premium brands including the ENVIROBASE® High Performance, AQUABASE® Plus, DELTRON® and GLOBAL REFINISH SYSTEM® lines. All classes are structured to ensure that paint technicians are up to date with PPG products, processes and technological advances.
Classes are led by expert instructors, take one to two days each, and are held at PPG Business Development Centers and various field locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Participants receive classroom instruction and, when appropriate, hands-on experience in the spray booth.
PPG training is the most extensive in the refinish industry. Programs offer a broad range of topics from product selection, equipment and color tools to surface preparation and paint application best practices and more.
Of particular importance are the certification classes offered for each PPG brand. PPG refinish technicians must be certified every two years. When PPG paint technicians and their respective collision centers are certified, the centers may offer the PPG Lifetime Limited Paint Performance Guarantee to their customers.
For the second quarter of 2019, PPG is offering over 70 different certification course options and over 40 recertification course options across the U.S. and Canada. Courses are available for Envirobase High Performance, Aquabase Plus, and Deltron paint lines.
All PPG classes allow opportunities for informal discussions and Q&A sessions with the trainers. Classes are available in French or Spanish in some locations.
