Courses held at training centers nationwide provide participants with a combination of classroom, online interactive and hands-on instruction.

The curriculum is designed to teach shop owners, managers and technicians about cutting-edge best practices for utilizing systems, maximizing profits and increasing productivity, according to the Cleveland-based company.

“Helping talented people get even better is a major part of who we are at Sherwin-Williams,” says Rod Habel, Sherwin-Williams director of training operations. “There is always another level of efficiency to achieve and always a new innovation waiting to be capitalized on. So we build a regular curriculum to connect collision repair professionals with the latest tech and best practices the industry has to offer.”

The fourth-quarter offering continues the training focus on color adjustment and blending, Sherwin-Williams said. The class content covers a combination of procedures, theory and application for practical shop experience and for refinish technicians and paint specialists to learn about new product updates and maximizing color application.
