Great course has helped in ‘winning new clients’

Alan Dunster recently attended the Exterior Coatings course at the Dulux Academy in Slough. Alan’s main reason for signing up was to keep up to date with the latest products and practices to make recommendations to my clients.

Alan says: “The course, led by the expert in his field Chris Wingrove, covered the preparation and application of Dulux and the wider AkzoNobel exteriors product range for wood, masonry and metals.

“The most useful aspects for me were getting to grips with the vast array of products and how to select the right solutions using best practice and fault-finding techniques. This was underpinned by Chris’ in-depth knowledge of the science behind external coatings and the ease in which he translated complex chemistry into understandable everyday terms.”  

Alan is no stranger to the Dulux Academy having now completed 15 courses including nine for the Dulux City and Guilds Level 3 Certificate in Colour, Design and Professional Decorating.

He says that the Academy courses have helped him to secure new clients, adding: “This course, along with the all the other excellent courses I have undertaken at the Dulux Academy has definitely made the difference in winning new clients.

“Being able to show you understand the decorating problems and solutions for a client’s home, inside and out, gives customers confidence you know what you are doing and will be making appropriate recommendations for the work and products required.”
