Paint Repair - PR001
Our PR001 30 hour introductory class is a terrific introduction to spot paint repairs.
Spot Paint Repair technicians use specialized tools, materials and techniques to
remove small paint imperfections without needing to repaint an entire panel.
Done correctly, these spot repairs are durable and practically invisible.
Paint repair is part science and part art. It requires a lot of personalized
instruction and many hours to master. PR001 offers you a first step in obtaining

Important Note: This class must
be run in shop suitable for spraying paint. If you do not
have such a facility, we can make arrangments with a local vocational school or
automotive repair shop. It is helpful if the room has a dry
erase whiteboard or we can bring our own.
OSHA requires that those involved in spraying paint wear the correct type of
respirator. The small fiber-type masks are not acceptable. An example of the
correct type of respirator is shown in the photo below.
All additional equipment and support materials are
provided for instruction by IQ Learning Systems including body panels, tools, and
a classroom set of our own custom training manuals.
For health reasons, respirators must not be shared. We bring a very limited number
of new respirators for sale in class. Respirators range in price from
$16.50 to $20.00 and are available in small, medium, and large sizes. We will
advise as to local sources from which you can purchase the required respirator.
