Different types of courses
Our courses take place either at our purpose-built facility at the decorative paints headquarters in Slough, or at one of our dedicated partners across the UK.
At our high tech Slough facility, we’ve got two ultra-modern training rooms, plus bright and colourful smaller rooms where you can share knowledge and express your creativity. There’s also our impressive application arena, which is ideal for training activities and the Skills Zone.
We’ve also got academies across the country, as we want to make our training as accessible as possible. Our other core venue locations include Ashington, Bolton, Edinburgh, Leeds, Lincoln and Walsall.
Our courses have been categorised into four key areas: Product, Application and Innovation, Sustainability, Colour & Design and Business Management allowing decorating professionals to develop their personal and professional ambitions. If there is something special you’re looking for get in touch and we’ll work out how we can support you or your team.
Need to step up your health and safety? We can help. Or perhaps you want to develop your business management skills? You’ll find what you’re after.
We run exclusive industry qualifications, like our level 3 City & Guilds course in colour, design and professional decorating. We also offer courses in core areas such as product application and innovation, woodcare, wallpapering, craft skills and colour and design. Take your pick.
