Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions announces the addition of a new trainer to its vehicle wrap training program and an extension to the 2021 wrap training schedule. Avery Dennison offers two hands-on courses — beginner/intermediate and intermediate/advanced — and a certification exam.
Charlie Trujillo, owner/CEO of Lettering Express in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, joins trainers Justin Pate, John Duever, and Chad Parrish. Trujillo holds multiple certifications, has participated in wrap competitions worldwide and brings over 15 years of industry experience to the program. Trujillo says, “I’m super excited to join such a great team; I feel like each of us brings something special to the table. I am excited to share my knowledge and expertise with the industry!”
With closed classes and growing waitlists through October, the company extends its 2021 training schedule. “We have a lot of passionate people ready to learn, so we wanted to give them more chances to do just that,” Graeme McKnight, Avery Dennison marketing associate, explains.
The company developed its workshops and Certified Wrap Installer (CWI) certification program in collaboration with well-known wrap installer Justin Pate. The focus of the program is on building real-world skills that increase profits and quality while streamlining workflow. Each attendee receives a free 25-yard roll of either a full print kit or color change film, application tools, and a discount membership to The Wrap Institute. In the program, instructors focus on cutting, material, and installation.
The company recommends the CWI Certification for installers who have completed at least 10 full wraps and/or completed both the beginner and intermediate/advanced workshops. Once an individual passes their final exam, they earn their Avery Dennison Certified Wrap Installer credentials.
