Become the Best in 2017 with 3M Installation Programs

Professional development and participation in continuing education are vital practices for the growth and advancement of both companies and individuals. Obtaining training and earning certification from 3M not only improves a shop’s expertise and reputation, but can also elevate an individual installer.

3M has developed a variety of expert-led programs for installers at all levels and continues to raise the standards for graphics installation through its 3M Advanced Installation Training course and its accreditation programs: 3M Certified Graphics Installation Company program, 3M Preferred Graphics Installer program, and 3M Endorsed Installer for 3M™ Knifeless Tape and Architectural Surfaces.

In the wake of so many companies and installers taking advantage of these opportunities in 2016, 3M has announced the following schedule for installation training and testing programs (See Below):

“Earning certification through 3M’s installation programs is a great way to fine-tune your wrap skills and differentiate yourself from your peers,” said Marcio Oliveira, technical service supervisor for 3M Commercial Solutions Division. “Our courses are led by experts in the field, and will provide attendees with tools, knowledge and hands-on training that will take them to the next level of their profession.”

The 3M Advanced Installation Training program offers professional graphics training to improve installer’s skills and prepare them for 3M Certified or Preferred installation testing.
