Three-day workshops will be held in 10 cities across the United States this year.
Mutoh and Avery are partnering for vehicle-wrap training classes in 10 cities across the country in 2013.
The Avery/Mutoh Car Wrap Training Program is designed to provide wrap installers with an in-depth understanding of graphic-installation mechanics to gain a competitive advantage in the vehicle-wrap industry, according to Mutoh America. The three-day workshop (optional third day for design instruction and certification test) will focus on the steps needed to improve the quality and speed of car-wrap installations.
Classes will be hosted by master installer Justin Pate. Pate is a globally recognized graphic installer with more than 16 years of experience; he uses his Universal Graphic Installation System (UGIS) teaching method, focusing on quick professional wrapping using resourceful tips, tricks, and tools.
