PPG announces commercial coatings training schedule


PPG has released its schedule of commercial coatings training classes for the rest of 2017. Courses specifically designed for the PPG Delfleet Essential and Delfleet Evolution brands and their use on commercial vehicles are held across North America at PPG Business Development Centers and various additional field locations.

PPG commercial coatings classes take one to two days and are led by PPG instructors and trainers. The classes cover a full range of topics including product selection, equipment, surface preparation and paint application. Classes include classroom lectures, group discussions and hands-on experience in the paint booth.

In addition to product knowledge and painting techniques, commercial coatings classes offer technicians the opportunity for certification and recertification in the use of Delfleet Essential and Delfleet Evolution products. PPG paint technicians must be certified every two years to ensure that they stay current with changing paint technology. When PPG paint technicians are certified, and their respective commercial collision centers are certified, the centers may take part in the PPG Lifetime Limited Paint Performance Guarantee. PPG technicians must be recertified, as required, for the commercial collision center to continue participating in the PPG paint guarantee program.

Commercial coatings classes also cover the business side of refinishing, teaching technicians how the efficient use of advanced Delfleet Essential and Delfleet Evolution products can enhance commercial collision center productivity and profitability while raising customer satisfaction.

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
  • Fundamentals of Commercial Truck Estimating
  • Commercial Performance Coatings—Spray Session
  • Commercial Performance Coatings Product Technologies

Full course descriptions with October, November and December dates and locations along with registration instructions can be found at the company’s website. Some classes are available in Spanish and French.
