Develop spray skills and techniques

Spraying offers loads of benefits to your business. It allows you to finish a job more quickly, letting you move onto your next project and helping you book more jobs into your diary. It also offers a smoother finish, giving your customers the high-quality outcome that they demand.

As Tony Pearson-Young from Dulux Academy says: "Upskilling with new techniques such as spray application is one of the quickest and easiest ways appliers can build their business offering.

"Whatever their reasons for joining courses, delegates leave with increased confidence and a better understanding of how they can use the method in new ways, all of which ultimately benefits their customers."

  • Introduction to Spray - covers all the essential basics including how to set up, maintain, clean and store equipment, and tips on the practical application required to achieve a perfect finish.

  • Advanced Spray Application (HVLP) - using practical, real-life scenarios, this course develops spray skills ideal for the domestic sector.
