Prep to Finish training…
[Click HERE to learn about PtF Contractor/Advanced Hobbyist Workshops]
Like most paint contractors who are still paint contractors, we have been paint contractors in three different decades now. It is no secret that one of the biggest flaws our industry has allowed is the continued decline in young people entering the paint trade. Too many paint contractors sitting behind computers, complaining about the lack of good help. Too many kids who can’t find jobs.
The complete and utter failure of an entire industry to plant the proper seeds to ensure it’s own sustainability is beyond us.
But a SOLUTION is not.
We have been contacted numerous times over the past couple of years by several different entities regarding “education”. As actual veteran former public school teachers, we take the tossing about of that word rather seriously.
You can quote us on this:
“There is nothing out there that does what we want it to do educationally for the paint industry. So, we built our own. We have formally launched our own brand of paint industry education, Prep to Finish.”
-Prep to Finish
Prep to Finish will take to the streets, starting thursday February 21, to launch a workshop series geared to vocational/technical students studying the building trades. It is a unique, hands on program, designed to show kids that painting is not much like scraping their Grandma’s fence.
Watch us take painter training where it has never been at: www.preptofinish.com.
And you can follow and interact with all of the activity at the Prep to Finish Facebook Page.
