Sherwin-Williams Announces 2011 Fourth Quarter Training Schedule

Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes fourth quarter training sessions will begin Oct. 3 and run through Dec. 19. Its latest classes will be held nationwide at numerous metropolitan Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes training centers. Collision repair industry professionals will learn intensive business-building and production-excellence through classroom, web and hands-on settings, Sherwin-Williams says.

Classes consist of multiple courses designed to increase shop productivity and include numerous sessions on painter certification, AWX waterborne systems, color adjustment and blending, key performance indicators, accurate estimating and workshop efficiency.

“Sherwin-Williams wants collision repair shops to become lean and green,” said Rod Habel, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes director of training operations. “You really can’t become green without first becoming lean and that means minimizing or even eliminating waste. A number of our sessions introduce concepts that support sustainable practices that should ultimately increase most collision centers’ productivity.”

The upcoming curriculum has a strong emphasis on the company’s breakthrough AWX waterborne coatings technology, while other classes will focus on painting excellence with its other systems.
