Some of the most popular courses include Colour Adjustment 1 & 2. Held at PPG training centres around the region, the courses are hands-on and cover a wide variety of topics, including:
  • Why OEM colour variations occur
  • How to make better use of colour tools
  • A variety of advanced blending techniques
  • The latest techniques and processes for dealing with single stage, basecoat/clearcoat and tri-coat colours.
Training class
After just one PPG training course it’s common for paint technicians to save at least one hour of labour per day back in the workshop.  In an industry climate where skilled technicians are difficult to recruit, that makes PPG colour training an ideal way to up-skill current staff with the knowledge and confidence they need to get the job done more efficiently and with a superior end result.
