De Beer training event a success

Rutger Vellinga, head of Valspar (DeBeer) training in Europe was in Dublin last week to hold a training session at the Team P R Reilly dedicated training centre in Kilbarrack.


The course was fully booked and attendees were introduced to the Valspar DeBeer range of products with a question and answer session, which went through the processes and systems that the delegates were using.
This was followed by a hands on practical training session using the DeBeer 900+ waterbase system as well as a comprehensive introduction to a variety of new lacquers.

Whereas some training courses receive criticism for being “too much talk” delegates taking part were delighted to have the opportunity to get stuck into the the various techniques that the course instructors were demonstrating.

At the end of the course all attendees were presented with a DeBeer 900+ training certificate and course notes. There was a very positive reaction from the delegates as they found it to be a strong mix between training room theory and spray booth practice.
