Why choose The Abode Decorating Training Academy?

As a decorator, you may be contemplating about whether or not you should start offering spray finishes to your clients. Or maybe you already spray, but are keen to learn another area and enhance your technique.

At The Abode Decorating Training Academy, owner Jamie Bourne (who has over 18 years experience in the industry) has been teaching decorators in the Wiltshire area 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.

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, and
  • providing a full day course for a reasonable, no-nonsense price of £220 (VAT not applicable) for all courses, regardless of the topic. 

 

It is important for the industry that decorators continue to improve their offering. Spraying is the latest way to do this. Jamie knows how important this is and that to keep improving the industry, decorators need to support each other and encourage progression in their spray journey. By doing so, we can all work as a community, offering flawless finishes to our clients and, in turn, become more profitable. 

The idea is to work smarter, not harder. If you want to know more about the courses, or you would like to speak to Jamie personally, please visit the website at https://abodedecorating.co.uk/the-training-academy.
