Who is this course for?

Well, it might be easier to tell you who it’s not for…

This course is not for people who are just getting started on powder coating. You need to be confident in your coating skills and preferably a solid handle on your gun settings.

This course is not for industrial clients or large manufacturing lines. We are available for consulting please contact us directly.

The concepts taught here are for custom powder coaters with established clientele or are ready to open up new markets in their area.

We plan on offering additional powder effects techniques as either a bonus to the course or as separately offered classes.
