Spraying Makes Sense Abode Acadamy

The decorating industry has changed a lot over the past 10 years. Traditional methods such as the brush and roller have been used for decades, whereas now with new technologies available spraying changing the industry. Although brush and rolling will always be a large part of painting and decorating, the sprayer is another tool to add to your tool bag. So why does spraying make sense and why would it be a good change to make for your business?


Spraying makes sense because it is:

· quicker

· more efficient, and

· provides a better finish.


At The Abode Training Acadamy owner Jamie Bourne (who has over 18 years’ experience in the industry) has been teaching decorators in the Wiltshire and Shropshire how to spray. The courses on offer range from a beginners airless course, covering everything a decorator needs to know when first branching out into spraying; to other more specialised courses such as woodwork, furniture refurbishment and kitchen resprays. This is why Spraying Makes Sense with the Abode Acadamy.


Jamie’s aim for the courses is to provide decorators with the knowledge they need for a reasonable price. All courses are structured around the students, to make sure they get as much as possible out of the training on the day and in the months to follow. The way in which the training academy achieves this is by:

· limiting the number of students per course to 3 people max – meaning that students get plenty of time to practice on the gun, as well as one-on-one time in which they can ask questions

· being flexible with dates – courses can be arranged for either a weekend or during the week, whichever best suits the students to fit around work and family commitments

· continuing to support students after the training by swapping contact numbers and being readily available to answer any questions or speak over the phone.

· providing a full day course for a reasonable, no-nonsense price of £500 for all courses, regardless of the topic.
