BASF is using uniform quality standards, close cooperation with vocational schools and special seminars to set new standards for up-and-coming spray painters as part of its STAMPP training initiative. In Falun, interested young people are now receiving professional training for the refinish area. The paint school in Falun is also a member of the Paintwork@Europe consortium, which includes five vocational schools from Germany, Sweden, Spain, Austria and Denmark. The future spray painters are introduced to the different spray painting methods used in the various countries. This qualifies them for jobs in European countries outside their own country and boosts their job prospects.
