Axalta Coating Systems has launched a Master Refinish Certification program as part of its Learning and Development offering in North America. The Master Refinish Certification program provides a path for refinish customers to advance skills and abilities from industry standard to expert through four educational stages. Students can earn the Master Refinish Certification using Axalta’s refinish brands, including Cromax, Spies Hecker and Standox. In addition, many of the courses that lead to certification qualify for I-CAR credit hours.

“Our customers asked for a program that would help develop talent in their businesses,” said Patrice Marcil, Axalta’s North American Learning and Development director. “The Master Refinish Certification program does that through a progressive learning journey that begins with knowledge-sharing in the field, advances to skill building in the classroom, progresses to real-world application in the body shop and positively influences decision making. Ultimately, the Master Certification program provides a well-rounded education that helps boost the overall skillset of the refinisher whose experience adds value to the business.”

Axalta’s Learning and Development programs are designed to improve customer performance by developing the skills and knowledge to help eliminate waste, reduce costs, keep cycle time to a minimum and increase retention by investing in employees’ careers. Programs are offered at Axalta’s 11 Learning and Development Centers in North America, in an office or shop, virtually online through AxaltaLearningCampus.com, or through a mix of blended learning methods, as needed per customer.

To learn more about the Master Refinish Certification program and to register for a course, customers can log on to www.axaltalearningcampus.com. More information about Learning and Development can be found at www.axaltacs.com/us/training.
