I attended the City and guilds course at the end of last year and found it a great experience ! The small group and constant practice really helped to drum in the different techniques ! Ian’s always asking questions for you to answer to see if it’s all sinking in and you leave feeling a lot more confident and excited to get back to work ! Can’t wait for whole Covid situation to be over so I can do another course 👍👍👍

You think you're attending a spraying course but you get so much more! I've completed the intensive airless spraying, furniture & joinery and spray plaster courses with Ian, Lyndsey and Craig at the Edenbridge Training Academy. After every course not only do you leave with a wealth of knowledge but also confidence to take to your next job. I have found the the post-training support network is invaluable, especially the business related discussions. Investing in spraying equipment is one thing but investing in yourself through top quality training is even more important.
