PPG Expands Online Technical Training Courses

PPG Automotive Refinish has expanded its online video technical training courses for collision center technicians, distributors and students. Developed through a partnership between PPG Refinish and 3M’s Automotive Aftermarket team, each online course is designed to teach an established standard technical repair process, PPG says.

The courses are available in the U.S. and Canada at www.ppgrefinish.com.

“It’s always been our goal to extend our training reach, providing technicians with another resource on best practices for refinishing a vehicle,” said Bill Troyer, director of training, PPG. “Offering online training complements our instructor-led classes and has become an important learning mechanism for collision centers looking to standardize their repair operations.”

“Today’s technology allows technicians to access these courses 24/7 anywhere they have a computer in the United States and Canada,” added Robert Hill, PPG technical sales instructor supervisor, central Canada.

PPG’s Online Technical Training video courses are focused on teaching the best practice for a standard refinish repair procedure. Thirteen courses are currently offered covering the most common refinish operations from light body repair, e-coat panel prep, plastic panel prep, priming and sealing, color identification and personal protective equipment.

PPG says the online courses use a proven methodology for teaching students of varying skills and abilities and are available for PPG and Nexa Autocolor products. Upon completing a course and passing an associated quiz, the student receives a certificate of completion.
