Axalta Services Announces Courses For 2020

Covering a range of topics, Axalta Services says the courses contained within its 2020 training schedule provide participants with valuable insights into the latest tools, techniques and methodologies needed to increase throughput and decrease cycle times within the body repair process.

The schedule kicks off this month with the first course named Pre-Lean. Axalta Services says attendees begin by going back to basics as they are re-introduced to ‘lean’ thinking in the collision repair industry. The course lays the foundations for a successful lean transformation and emphasises the need for basic processes to be in place before a business embarks on a ‘lean journey’.

According to the company, blueprinting, optimum parts management and solid production controls are important components of a lean system and understanding their effects on cycle times during the course prompts participants to focus their thinking.

“In the past, many of us have been guilty of trying to run before we can walk. This course recognises that and takes us back a step,” said Axalta Services Manager, Robin Taylor.

Axalta’s training alliance with I-CAR means that upon completion of any Axalta Services course, participants will be awarded credit that can be applied towards the I-CAR Gold Class Professionals and Platinum Individual designations, or be used to meet role-relevant annual training requirements. Each credit point earned will be submitted to I-CAR and recorded on the participant’s personal training record.
