UK Painter Courses

So you've completed your apprenticeship. Well done!

Being a good painter doesn't automatically mean you will make lots of money. Business skills are skills not often taught during an apprenticeship.

To help you learn to establish and run a successful business we've created an on-line mentoring and coaching program for painters based in the U.K. Topics covered include:

  • Estimating, Tendering and Quoting
  • Financial Management and Budgeting
  • Marketing and Business Development
  • Effective Customer Service

One of the most important things you can do to establish a successful business is to specialise in a particular aspect of painting. This means further study and practice in advanced skills.

Our advanced skills training includes the following topics:

  • Paint Colour Consultancy
  • Anti-graffiti Coatings
  • Protective Coatings
  • Texture Coating
  • Spray-painting
  • Lead paint Abatement
Now you can get trained and mentored by the best in the business. Become a true 'master' of your trade.
Study on-line wherever you are, whenever you want. Get one-on-one mentoring and help from experienced, qualified professionals.
