Company provides hands-on experience to TAFE NSW Students using Axalta’s latest paint technology and repair equipment

Axalta recently hosted the first round of 2020 Automotive Refinishing Technology TAFE NSW Campbelltown students at its new state-of-the-art training centre in Marsden Park, NSW.
Through their participation in this training, TAFE NSW Campbelltown students gain invaluable hands-on experience using the latest paint technology and repair equipment. In addition, students will have access to technical trainers who will instruct them on the latest application techniques, evolving digital technologies, and repair processes.

“As an automotive OEM partner, Axalta is well-placed to share the latest requirements and developments for a wide range of vehicle makers,” said Paul Polverino, Axalta’s National Training Manager. “At our Marsden Park training centre, we provide the materials, the venue and a trainer to work alongside the TAFE NSW trainer with a goal to teach and further the skills of these talented students on the latest technologies in auto repair and refinish. These TAFE NSW students represent the next generation of our business and the future success of our industry. Understanding the opportunities now and will set them up for rewarding and long-standing careers in auto repair and refinish.”

“By partnering with Axalta, our students receive hands-on training using modern technology and repair techniques and can see how all of that turns into a well-paying job,” says Carl Tinsley, Autobody Repair and Surface Coatings teacher at TAFE NSW, Campbelltown. “Each student will work towards completing their Certificate III Vehicle Painting Apprenticeship, which will allow them to enter the industry with the hands on skills to forge a successful career.”

Axalta is committed to supporting apprentices who seek a career in auto repair and refinishing and have many more sessions planned for new and continuing TAFE NSW students in 2020.
