The 2011 Avery Dennison/Mutoh Car Wrap Training Program sessions were so popular that we are offering ten sessions throughout the United States and Canada in 2012. Justin Pate will be back teaching his wrap installation techniques and a new feature will be a design, layout and front-end customer work with expert Todd LaBrie. Avery Dennison certification tests will also be offered in conjunction with each session.
Avery Dennison is excited to announce that we are partnering with Mutoh America, ONYX, Knifeless Tape and CroftGate to offer the Avery Dennison/Mutoh Car Wrap Training Program sessions in 2012. The sessions sold out quickly last year and got great reviews. One participant from Georgia shared, “I really learned a lot in the class and it has really been paying off in the time I save at work.”
New in 2012 is a session on the third day from 12:30 – 5 p.m. that will be led by wrap industry veteran, Todd LaBrie, and cover vehicle wrap design, layout and customer service.
Justin Pate, one of the world’s most recognized and accomplished wrap applicators, is back for another full year of teaching. Each session consists of two days of training and an optional third day for a wrap certification test in the morning and a design and layout class in the afternoon. Training sessions will focus on all of the critical steps needed to improve the quality and speed of car wrap installations. Class sizes will be maintained at a maximum of 17 students to allow for more one on one teaching. The subjects that will be covered include:
· Properties of the film
· UGIS: Universal Graphic Installation System
· Layout/Key Panel
· Problem Solving
· Hardware Removals
· Post Install Tips
Participants of the class will receive an NT Cutter A-551P knife, Avery Toolkit including print media and laminate, and a Martor safety box.
