Dulux workers brushed up on their knowledge and put their products into action with an intensive course in painting and decorating.
The 11 Dulux sales representatives and managers learned how to do it themselves on the five-day course delivered by Walsall College, enabling them to offer better customer advice.
Dulux regional sales manager Steve Guice said: “I’ve picked up some great tips on the course and now have a better understanding of our products and how they are used in real situations.
“I really enjoyed the course as it was a mixture of classroom lessons and applying this new knowledge on practical tasks.”
The course covered surface preparation, wallpaper and paint application techniques and choosing the right tools and products for the job, and resulted in a City & Guilds level one qualification.
It may have other benefits, as Mr Guice added: “I’ve also been inspired to do some DIY projects in my own home that I’ve been putting off.”
