PaintTech Airless Spray Course Review

By Paul O’Toole


I attended the Intensive Airless Spray Course last weekend at the PaintTech Academy in Preston. The course is designed for anyone from a complete novice like myself, to some of the more experienced sprayers.


There were three of us on the course and it went incredibly smoothly from start to finish. The instructor was always friendly and approachable, and as you would expect, a fountain of knowledge.


The whole experience has rejuvenated my enthusiasm for decorating and I have all intentions of applying my new skills from here on. Some of the things I learned about the benefits of spraying were mind blowing.


Example: to prepare the average hall, stairs and landing for spraying takes around 20 mins. Primer and each coat thereafter per door per side is only 53 secs! Skirts, architrave & stairs per coat is only 4 mins!! Spindles and handrail per coat is 4 mins.


I had two similar hall, stairs and landing jobs lined up so, one was before the course and it took Four solid days to complete. The job after the course was complete over two days – just 4 hours in total. I’m already doubling my profit as a decorator due to the things I learned whilst attending the PaintTech course.


I would have no hesitation in recommending the course to everyone, as Pete makes it interesting and fun in a totally relaxed atmospher.
