Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions added two all-new classes to its previously announced 2024 training schedule. The new classes are “Architectural Window Film Training” and “Advanced Supreme Wrapping Film Training.” Both will be held at The Wrap Gym at Miller Decals in Acworth, Georgia, outside of Atlanta.

Architectural Window Film Training

The “Architectural Window Film Training” takes place June 10-11 and also Sept. 30-Oct. 1. All skill levels are welcome. No previous experience is required. The class will be limited to a maximum of 14 students. The cost of this training class is $995.

The training will focus solely on installing architectural solar window film, both interior and exterior. Brief presentations will take place in the morning of Day 1 and the early afternoon of Day 2. The greater part of the two days will be devoted to instruction, hands-on demonstrations, and installations. All tools and materials will be provided by Avery Dennison along with different types of windows to practice on. All participants will receive a toolkit and roll of reflective interior film after the training as well as an architectural dealer kit.

Harold Nimtz will be the trainer for the Architectural Window Film Training. He is the owner/operator of House of Tint, which he established in Phoenix in 2005 and now operates in Winslow, Arizona. Nimtz specializes in window tinting for cars, trucks, homes, and businesses.
