Axalta Academy launches in Australia and New Zealand
The team at Axalta Australia & NZ have locally launched the Axalta Academy, a cutting-edge global training platform for refinish professionals. This state-of-the-art platform is now available worldwide in 15 languages, offering refinishers the opportunity to enhance their skills and expertise through top-class training that aligns with their work methods.
The Axalta Academy has been specifically designed with customers in mind, aiming to elevate their capabilities and place them in a league of their own. With a focus on sharing knowledge about advanced digital tools, application techniques, innovation, and continuous training, the platform caters to the needs of busy, ambitious bodyshops. It also serves as an invaluable resource for upcoming apprentices, providing them with the necessary foundation for a successful career in automotive refinishing.
One of the standout features of the Axalta Academy is its tailored approach. The resources have been carefully curated for different user profiles, including apprentices, painters, bodyshop managers, and bodyshop owners. Each profile is provided with content specifically tailored to their individual goals, whether it's mastering the basics, staying up-to-date with the latest products and techniques, maximising earning potential, or maintaining a competitive edge.
To ensure maximum flexibility, the Axalta Academy offers three different training options: face-to-face, live virtual, and e-learning. Face-to-face training courses are conducted by experienced Axalta instructors at world-class training facilities located across the globe. These hands-on sessions cover both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Live virtual training events, on the other hand, provide custom distance learning directly from Axalta training facilities. Participants can interact with trainers and ask questions during these sessions. The e-learning component of the platform includes an interactive library of instructional content covering various topics related to automotive refinishing.
