Axalta Announces Training Courses for 2021

We have recently launched our 2021 training schedule, for both product training and Axalta Services. The 2021 programme will be held across Axalta’s five state-based training centres and will cover a range of topics. Participants will be provided with valuable insights into the latest tools, techniques and methodologies needed to increase throughput and decrease cycle times within the body repair process.

The most noteworthy new addition to the training schedule is a product course focusing on Axalta’s fast-cure, low energy systems which use proprietary, patented Axalta technology. In these courses, participants will learn how to cut process times by up to 50% for the entire refinish process and how they can save energy by drying at temperatures as low as 20C.

The first Axalta Services course for the year covers Pre-Lean. As part of the course, participants will begin by going back to the basics to be re-introduced to ‘Lean’ thinking in the Collision Repair Industry. Paint optimisation courses will be covered later in 2021.

Due to Axalta’s Training Alliance with I-CAR, upon completion of these courses, participants will be awarded credit that can be applied towards the I-CAR Gold Class Professionals, Platinum Individual designations, or be used to meet role relevant annual training requirements. Each credit point earned will be submitted to I-CAR and recorded on their personal training record.
