The Abode Decorating Training Academy’s brand new spraying courses coming to Shropshire 

We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback we’ve received since announcing the opening of our second Training Academy for decorators in Whitchurch, Shropshire where we will be teaching spraying courses.


Courses will include:

Beginners airless and woodwork

Kitchens and furniture spraying, and



Coming soon will be a special effects course. These are all one day courses starting at 8.30am and finishing at 4.30pm. You can choose from booking a one to one course or bring a friend along for a discount.


Our training courses are different to any other in that we focus solely on practical learning. From the moment you arrive to the minute you leave, you’ll be up on your feet masking and spraying (except for lunch of course!). We have had countless decorators approach us and say that they’ve been on other training courses where they’ve left feeling disappointed as they didn’t actually get to do much spraying. Not with our courses! Not only will we help you with spraying but we’ll help you market your company. Our promise to you is that you will be spraying all day and you’ll leave feeling confident and inspired to get cracking and booking those jobs in.


The added benefit to our courses is that the support continues after the day. You can get in touch with your trainer to ask questions and you’ll join a community of students on Facebook where you can post questions and get real time answers. You’ll also receive special discounts and deals on spraying equipment and supplies through our online store Our mission is to stay with you throughout your spraying journey and to support you in your growth.


Our courses have been running in Wiltshire for over 3 years now and we will now be opening our new Academy in Shropshire. The courses will be run by our good friend and spraying expert Paul Donnelly. You may know Paul as The Geordie Painter. Paul has over 25 years’ worth of experience in decorating and spraying. Since adding spraying to his list of services Paul has noticed his company grow drastically and would like to help other decorators do the same.


Spraying has completely changed our career and the way we run our business. We’ve watched all of our students thrive after the courses and go on to expand their businesses and triple their income. Just knowing you’ve helped someone with that journey is very rewarding and it’s inspiring to see.


So if you’re looking to learn how to spray and you’re just starting out, or you’ve been spraying for a while but want to add to your services then choose to learn with us at The Abode Decorating Training Academy. We promise you’ll leave feeling confident, supported and excited to start booking those spraying jobs in and expanding your business.
