Basic, intermediate, and advanced hands-on classes offered across the US.
Mutoh America is partnering with media company Avery Dennison and graphics-installer Justin Pate to take the Mutoh “Hands-On” School of Wrap class across the US in 2010. The classes, reports Mutoh, are designed to provide attendees with an in-depth understanding of graphic-installation mechanics so that they can gain a competitive advantage in the vehicle wrap indus-try.
Dates and locales for 2010 include:
• March 11-13: Mentor, Ohio
• June 7-9: Elkridge, Maryland
• August 16-18: Burbank, California
• October 18-20: Mentor, Ohio
• December 9-11: Phoenix, Arizona
"The workshops are a reflection of the work ethic that I have relied on over my 14-year career: installing graphics with the highest quality, durability and efficiency,” says Pate. “My Universal Graphics Installation System (UGIS) is a fluid, easy-to-learn platform. It reduces mistakes and ensures quality, which results in significantly lower install times. This combination provides the installer with a decisive edge in today's graphic-installation field."
The first two dates at each locale comprise Basic and Intermediate classes (12 students maxi-mum); the third date at each locale comprises an Advanced class (eight students maximum).
Basic/Intermediate classes will teach: tools, properties of films, removals, cleaning, layout/key panel, registration, problem solving, hardware removals, post-install tips, and more.

Participants will receive: NT Cutter A-551P knife, Avery Squeegee, discount for 1-year membership to Carwraps Video training platform, and a free copy of “Speedwrap Xtra” video, featuring Pate wrapping a vehicle in two hours.
