General Formulations has announced that it will host an in-person wrap certification course titled “PDAA Windows, Walls, and Floors” on July 8-9 in Sacramento, California, at WrapStar Pro.

The course is designed to train installers to gain PDAA Certified Architectural Films (windows, walls, and floors) status.

Training will include information on vinyl types and adhesives, application tools, tips and tricks, and demonstrations of each station. Installers will receive training and have the opportunity to practice on all stations. Once confident, the ability to test will also be provided.

The testing stations include a wall graphic with inside and outside corners, a round column, a floor graphic, wet and dry window graphics application (including window perf), a rough textured surface, and a steel locker unit.

An installer who passes all the certification stations will earn PDAA Certification and a digital badge. Through PDAA certification, a company holds verified proof that their installer has the skill set, the knowledge of industry terms, and the proficiency with all the tools necessary to install any standard architectural film in a typical industry setting (retail stores, trade shows, banks, offices, etc.).

Training will be presented by Kristin Lanzarone, owner-operator of WrapStar Pro.

PDAA will use General Formulations as the vinyl of choice for this event.
