PPG develops technician training program

PPG Automotive Refinish has launched an initiative to partner with post-secondary technical schools and colleges to develop skilled entry-level technicians

PPG Automotive Refinish has launched an initiative to partner with post-secondary technical schools and colleges to develop skilled entry-level technicians to be employed with PPG customers.

“Given the significant shortage of technicians in the industry, PPG, in conjunction with pilot schools, has developed this program to expand the pool of qualified students,” said Bill Troyer, training manager for PPG Automotive refinish. “Our focus is on working closely with select schools to increase the level of student skills, ensure instructors are knowledgeable in the latest technologies and processes, and enable our customers to locate the highest quality entry-level technicians.”

The North Dakota State College of Science is the first school to join the program.
