PPG to hold collision repair training conference

PPG-SYM4CPPG Commercial Coatings is holding two upcoming training events for commercial vehicle collision and repair facilities.

The company’s first event, a Commercial Green Belt Training course, is being held this week in Houston.

PPG says the four-day event features a curriculum that “has been carefully developed to provide an effective balance between teaching the proven science behind process improvement and implementing practical solutions for driving best-in-class performance in an environment that allows the participants to learn in classroom and to see how to apply in a real collision center.”

PPG also is preparing for its upcoming 2015 Commercial Truck Conference.

Set for April 26-28, 2015, in Palm Springs, Calif., PPG says its Commercial Truck Conference is open to all PPG Commercial Coatings customers.


The comprehensive three-day event is filled with various lean operations training courses, breakout sessions and networking events, the company says.

The event is the “ultimate learning ground for the heavy-duty truck collision repair industry,” PPG says. “With a jam-packed schedule of breakout sessions tailored specifically to the commercial truck industry and engaging presentations from business thought leaders, you’ll learn new ways to strengthen your business and improve your bottom line.”

Registration is still open for the upcoming April event, and can be found, along with more information about the event, at www.ppgmvp.com.
