Apprentice Paint Training at PPG

PPG provided first class training for two of AW Repair Group’s apprentices in a series of recent courses

Following the success of multiple AW paint technicians attending the PPG training centre for an advanced refinisher course, they chose to send two paint apprentices to the training centre in Stowmarket to further develop their skills.

James Dunn, AW Repair Group Operations Manager, found the training to be “a resounding success and one of the differentiators in the market place”.

The apprenticeship training took place over two days and featured both classroom and practical sessions from PPG technical experts to help the young technicians learn more about PPG products and application. The sessions included sanding of panels, understanding the correct application of filler, roll primer application and how to correctly prepare and apply basecoat and clearcoat products.

The dual-style approach also allowed the apprentices to work with PPG colour IT solutions exploring the TOUCHMIX® Mixing and RAPIDMATCH® Spectrophotometer devices.

Kane Hoe, VWG paint apprentice based at AW Repair Group’s prestige HQ in Sleaford, Lincolnshire commented; “I thought the two days were really beneficial towards my apprenticeship and my learning. The PPG experts Richard Pipe and Steve Beaumont were extremely helpful and made us both feel comfortable and confident in training.”
