Axalta announced its regional refinish training program, "Axalta on Tour," is being held virtually this year to ensure the health and safety of the participants and instructors.
The training program provides continuous learning opportunities to Axalta's automotive refinish customers in the region.
"Axalta on Tour" incorporates live training and recorded tutorials about the company's most innovative products, systems and technologies into a comprehensive curriculum, which can be accessed via Axalta's social media and other digital technology platforms.
Training offered through the "Axalta on Tour" program includes surface preparation, varnishes, plastic refinishing, cost control and custom finishes, among others.
Customers can also ask questions to Axalta experts about the products and services during the training.
"Our customers are a priority. We are very proud of this program and the opportunity it gives us to be closer to our customers. Over the last four years, more than 20,000 master painters in the region have participated in the 'Axalta on Tour' training program," said Daniel Salcido, president of Mexico at Axalta. "This year has certainly been a challenging one, and we all had to find new – and innovative – ways to stay connected to our customers. This virtual training program was developed as a way to continue to provide ongoing and relevant training to our customers."
The "Axalta on Tour" training courses are available to all Axalta's refinish customers in Latin America through the Axalta on Tour fan page and the Axalta Latinoamérica profile on Axalta's social media channels.
"It is our commitment to helping automotive refinishers to strengthen their skills and increase their performance, that is why we have adapted our training and expanded our course offerings to reach as many people as possible," said Karla Tortolero, marketing and strategic planning manager, Latin America at Axalta. "This is another way that Axalta can help keep our employees, customers and communities safe and productive during this unprecedented time."
