PPG’s Commercial Coatings division recently released the second-quarter schedule for its training classes, which are designed to ensure paint technicians stay up to date with the continuous technological advances of PPG products.
Classes are set for April, May and June across the United States and Canada at PPG Business Development Centers and various additional field locations.
PPG commercial training covers the DELFLEET ESSENTIAL and DELFLEET Evolution brands, along with other popular PPG commercial performance coatings (CPC) product lines. Classes also are offered for PPG’s ADJUSTRITE commercial estimating system.
Expert PPG instructors and trainers lead the one- and two-day classes that include lectures, group discussions and question-and-answer 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 also are 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, classes for certification in the use of Delfleet Essential and Delfleet Evolution products are offered. PPG technicians must be certified every two years. When PPG technicians at 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 and Spanish in some locations. Call 800-647-6050 for full course descriptions, dates, locations and registration instructions. Classes fill quickly, so early registration is encouraged.
