PHILADELPHIA - Axalta Coating Systems has launched a Master Refinish Certification program as part of its Learning and Development offering in North America. The Master Refinish Certification program provides a path for refinish customers to advance skills and abilities from industry standard to expert through four educational stages. Students can earn the Master Refinish Certification using Axalta’s refinish brands, including Cromax®, Spies Hecker® and Standox®. In addition, many of the courses that lead to certification qualify for I-CAR credit hours. I-CAR is the international, not-for-profit Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair and is dedicated to providing the information, knowledge and skills required to perform complete, safe and quality repairs.

Axalta’s Learning and Development programs are designed to improve customer performance by developing the skills and knowledge to help eliminate waste, reduce costs, keep cycle time to a minimum and increase retention by investing in employees’ careers. Programs are offered at Axalta’s 11 Learning and Development Centers in North America, in an office or shop, virtually online through, or through a mix of blended learning methods, as needed per customer.
