The British Coatings Federation (BCF) is expanding its training program for the coatings industry worldwide with a new partner, Vincentz Network. The agreement was signed during the CEPE Annual Meeting in Prague between Tom Bowtell (CEO at BCF) and Jürgen Nowak (publisher at Vincentz).
For several years the BCF has marketed the “British School of Paint Technology” mainly in the UK. To reflect the new global approach, the name was modified to “The Coatings Training Institute” and now will reach many more potential students with Vincentz’s backing.
The Coatings Training Institute`s web training, which will officially go live on Nov. 1,2013, is suitable for anyone who needs to know more about coatings technology. More than 60 modules are offered at four levels of difficulty. Students can pick and choose the modules that best meet their needs. The wide range of modules extends from Paint and Ink application, Manufacture and Evaluation of Paints, Ink Technology and Formulation to Pigments and other raw materials.
