Wrap Training Questions?

“My goal for the workshops is quite simple – to help raise the quality and durability of the installer’s work while lowering install times.  I do this via a combination of teaching my unique UGIS (Universal Graphic Installation System), showing the latest tools and by offering practical, easy to use solutions that come up during the carwrapping process.  I get the beginners up to speed by stressing strong fundamentals and help experienced installers master the trickier aspects along with creating better workflow.”                             - Justin Pate

2 Day -  Advanced Supreme
Wrapping™ Film Class:

 

This class focuses solely on color change films. Participants will work with different finishes, including gloss, matte, brushed metallic, carbon and chrome.  The highlights of this workshop are on raising the quality of finishing (particularly corners), how to seamlessly wrap the more difficult aspects of vehicles such as mirrors, bumpers and door handles as well as improving work flow through sound technique.

 


“Paintwrapping requires an installer to have a higher all-around skill set than for standard full print car wraps.  Also, the installer has to fully understand the properties of gloss, matte, matte metallic, carbon, textured and chrome films as all behave differently.  In the Avery Supreme Wrapping™ workshop, I really get the chance to take installers deeper into the process which fully opens the door to higher quality, durability and efficiency.”

Avery Dennison Certification Exam:

 

It is highly recommended that anyone taking the certification exam has installed at least 10 full wraps.

"Getting certified is extremely important in today’s wrapping world as it immediately distinguishes an installer from others when clients are looking for someone to wrap their vehicle.  Becoming an Avery Certified Installer gives premium status and is for life - no annual fees or need to retake the test.  I personally oversee all the certification tests so the quality of the installers who pass are of the level they need to be in order to ensure professional results on the level Avery Dennison and the installation industry requires.”         - Justin Pate

 

The Avery Dennison certification test is made up of five modules: written exam, hood, fender, door/window and a cutting test. Materials used for the exam will be either MPI 1005 Easy Apply RS with 1360, SWF or a combination of the two. All participants will get a study guide upon signing up for the test. Avery Dennison will provide basic tools and cleaners, but participants are recommended to bring their own tools. All results will be sent to the participant within 1-3 days after completion.
