3M Commercial Solutions Division announces changes to its installer training programs, including the addition of training dedicated exclusively to vehicle color change.

“We’ve heard from many installers across the U.S. that there is a strong interest in learning specific application types. By segmenting our training offering, this aligns installers to build their own career path,” explains Elizabeth Ziegler, application engineering supervisor.

This new addition is a two-day class dedicated to installing 3M Wrap Film Series 2080 and using 3M Knifeless Tape. As consumers increasingly seek to customize their vehicles, from full-color changes to chrome deletes and racing stripes, students will learn how to be successful in this industry.

“This is a big change for 3M installer training,” says Janelle Pizzi, 3M marketing manager. “Since we first began training installers, our focus has been very broad so installers could learn most types of applications common in the graphics industry. Listening to the market and focusing on the changing demands is our priority.”

Students learn best practices and techniques for installing printed film on fleet vehicles, windows, walls, floors, interior design settings, and colored wrap films on personal vehicles. After passing a test demonstrating their skills in each application type, students earn the designation 3M Preferred Installer. Since 2009, the 3M Commercial Solutions Division has trained more than 1,000 installers.
