spray-painters-pic-1BASF Coatings Services recently hosted the first spray-painting training workshop for NF Apprentices at the Refinish Competence Centre (RCC) in Midrand. The apprentices, who are currently placed in various body shops in Gauteng, spent a week at the training facility with BASF’s technical trainers.

“The reason we partnered with BASF for the training is so that the apprentices get a solid orientation into the industry,” explains Busi Maile, programme director for NF Apprentices. “This also ensures that the apprentices have a sound foundation so that when they go to the panel shop, they immediately begin using best practices.”

The week-long training included theoretical aspects of the trade with a majority of the training focused on practical exercises. “We want to make sure that by the time an apprentice qualifies, they have learnt all there is to know about the trade over and above the current curriculum requirements which do not cover the advancements in technology and new innovations that have changed the face of the industry in the past decade,” notes Maile.

Nico Krukenberg, commercial manager for BASF Coatings Services adds, “We are aware of the urgent need to get more spray painters into the market and partnering with NF complements our current training initiatives we are involved with across the country.”
