Warrensville Heights, Ohio – Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes announced the schedule for its 2014 second quarter training sessions. These courses will provide collision repair industry professionals advanced knowledge in their field and be available from April through June, 2014 throughout the U.S. at its advanced regional training centers.
Participants will learn through a combination of classroom, web and hands-on settings. Designed for shop owners, managers, painters and technicians, attendees can choose from various workshops to advance their business-building, production-excellence and/or paint application techniques. .
 
The following courses will be offered during the second quarter:
 
Estimating Solutions for Profit
Color Adjustment and Blending
AWX Performance Plus™ Waterborne System Painter Certification
ATX™ Refinish System Painter Certification
 
Many of these offered courses tie directly into the Sherwin-Williams philosophy of ‘lean thinking’ – introducing concepts that support environmentally responsible practices – which increase productivity while minimizing or often eliminating waste, according to Rod Habel, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Director of Training Operations. A good example are the training courses on the company’s fast-drying, easy to mix and apply AWX Performance Plus waterborne system which provides excellent color match, quick flash times between coats and requires minimal (or even eliminates!) the baking cycle.
