Training Series Overview

Why not learn from the experts?

The Professional Standard

PCA training is sourced from decades of studying the best practices and compiling them into one convenient place for contractors.

Based on the tried-and-true Craftsman Operating Procedures (COPs), we begin by introducing the trade in the Trade Best Practice (TBP) series. This series gives the new tradesperson a comprehensive background on career options, while introducing basic skills, tools and personal protection equipment.

Move from trade introduction to tactical skills training with the PCA Painter Training series. This series provides Level 1, 2, 3 interior and exterior skills taught by experts in the industry.
