According to Rod Habel, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes director of training operations, participants will learn through a combination of classroom, digital and hands-on settings at various metropolitan Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes training centers.
“In today’s constantly changing industry, training has become more important than ever for a customer to be successful in business,” said Habel. “For instance, with today’s new factory finishes, our Color Adjustment and Blending class is a great way for technicians to stay ahead of the curve.”
He noted that the following hands-on paint and processes application-based courses will be offered during the fourth quarter: AWX Performance Plus Waterborne Refinish System; Color Adjustment and Blending; Fleet CFR; and Painter Certification.
Additional shop management and business-building courses will also be offered: Achieving Service Excellence; Improving Workshop Efficiency; and Estimating Solutions for Profit.
Habel says the Sherwin-Williams philosophy of lean operations is common to all its classes.
“We’re always seeking to introduce concepts that support sustainable practices, increase productivity and minimize or even eliminate waste – all factors that are necessary to the success of a collision center.”
