Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes (SWAF) has added a number of new modules to its eLearning site of online interactive training suites.
Designed for collision facility owners, managers and painting professionals, its new Standard Operating Procedures online courses provide a flexible, convenient learning venue. The courses also better prepare collision repair professionals for future, hands-on training at one of SWAF’s regional training centers.
“Our new eLearning Standard Operating Procedures training is designed to enhance the product, applications and process training held in all of our training facilities in North America,” said Rod Habel, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes manager of training operations. “These eLearning courses complement our present online curriculum and come complete with testing and a printable certificate upon completing all provided modules.”
In particular, the latest eLearning modules include a focus on streamlining the shop process, improving quality and beginning the lean journey. These classes can then be followed up by any number of other training programs Sherwin-Williams offers, including painter certification, AWX waterborne systems, color adjustment and blending, fleet refinishing, OEM certification training, accurate estimating and workshop efficiency.
Habel noted that many of the new classes directly relate to Sherwin-Williams’ philosophy of helping customers through ‘lean thinking’ by providing training that introduces concepts supporting sustainable practices. This, in turn, increases productivity while minimizing or often eliminating waste.
He added that the new eLearning modules also set the stage for more intense, hands-on training on the company’s breakthrough AWX waterborne coatings technology and its new Express Scratch Repair system. The latter is designed to help shops increase profits through add-on work and minor repairs easily accomplished with its HP Process Refinish System and revolutionary air-dry, HPC 15 Clearcoat Technology.
