BASF supported the efforts to open the 29,000-square-foot training center on Guilford’s campus that continues to host classes each quarter, including R-M and Glasurit certification, buffing and color-matching. With three downdraft prep booths set up with SATA fresh air, two classrooms that allow vehicles to be pulled in and worked on during a class and ample space and lighting allowing for detailed hands-on instruction, students are guaranteed a first-class learning experience at every course. The facility at GTCC has also been selected to host SkillsUSA North Carolina in May 2020.

“Investing in future technicians at these local schools is key,” said Ricky Hale, Technical Service Specialist for BASF Automotive Refinish. “It has been amazing to watch so many students evolve into successful professional technicians over the years. I am passionate about the education we provide because our people truly become our future in this business.”

Dedicated to developing the next generation of technicians, BASF continues working with local schools to support their refinish programs, making sure students can maximize their learning experience through modern technology, facilities and equipment. Other schools in the U.S. that have received support from BASF include College of Lake County in Grayslake, Illinois, and Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School in Marlborough, Massachusetts.

“This facility has one of the best set-ups I’ve ever seen,” said Thaddeous Green, regional business manager for BASF Automotive Refinish. “Between the square footage, all of the tools and materials provided for the training and the passion of the instructors, students will be prepared very well for what they will experience as refinish technicians.”
