British Coatings Federation Partners with Vincentz Network

Published October 10, 2013
The British Coatings Federation (BCF) is expanding  its training program for the coatings industry worldwide with a new partner, Vincentz Network. The agreement was signed  during the CEPE Annual Meeting in Prague between Tom Bowtell (CEO at BCF) and Jürgen Nowak (Publisher at Vincentz).  

“I am proud for the BCF to be teaming up with such a strong partner in the Coatings Industry, organizer of the leading European Coatings SHOW and publisher of the European Coatings JOURNAL. Vincentz has a stellar reputation and an unparalleled reach in the coatings industry, and I’m looking forward to working together to help to educate the Coatings Industry around the world” said Tom Bowtell, BCF’s chief executive officer..

For several years the BCF has marketed the “British School of Paint Technology” mainly in the UK. To reflect the new global approach, the name was modified to “The Coatings Training Institute” and now will reach many more potential students with Vincentz’s backing.

The Coatings Training Institute`s web training, which will officially go live on November 1st,2013,   is suitable for anyone who needs to know more about coatings technology. This means not just people directly involved  in coatings formulation and manufacture, but also people right across the supply chain, including suppliers to the industry and users of coatings products. Sales people, customer service staff, managers at all levels, people working in the lab, quality control, and production staff will all benefit.

More than 60 modules are offered at four levels of difficulty. Students can pick and choose the modules that best meet their needs. The wide range of modules extends from Paint and Ink application, Manufacture and Evaluation of Paints, Ink Technology and Formulation to Pigments and other raw materials.

The new state of the art website “The Coatings Training Institute” allows students  self-study in their own time with the highest flexibility: “Learn where and when you want – at your own pace!” An additional plus for this distance learning programme is that students have excellent support and direct contact with qualified BCF tutors, making it much more than basic on line study.
Successful completion of 6 modules will result in achieving the International Certificate in Coatings Technology, which will be a great career accelerator for individuals  in the demanding coatings world.
