PPG is committed to providing the highest level of training, technical support and services required for your shop to make a smooth transition to the Envirobase® High Performance waterborne basecoat system.


PPG offers comprehensive waterborne certification training, covering everything your paint technicians need to know to get the very best out of your new waterborne basecoat system. The two-day painter certification course includes both classroom and hands-on instruction, and participants earn I-CAR® Training Alliance credit hours for completion. Topics covered include:


The PPG Technician Certification Training Program is a key part of PPG’s commitment to keep painters informed and their skills operating at a high level. Therefore, re-certification of the technician is required every two years. It assures that technicians will stay up-to-date with the latest products and process techniques for maximizing the paint operation productivity and quality. Moreover, technician recertification is required every two years as a qualification for participating in the PPG Lifetime Limited Paint Performance Guarantee program.


To help collision center technicians achieve the best color match with Envirobase® High Performance products, PPG offers additional training support. Our color-matching class covers the theory of color and its practical application in matching and tinting. In addition, paint technicians will receive in-depth knowledge of the Envirobase® High Performance waterborne color system and associated color tools, as well as hands-on exercises to practice what you’ve learned.
