There is no doubt about it, you have made a great choice to explore the exciting world of Vehicle Refinishing!

Refinishing is a vast subject given that almost everything that surrounds us has a coating of some form or another applied to it for various reasons, ranging from abrasion resistance to simply decorative effects such as custom painting on a vehicle.

Here at the Tameside Vehicle Paint Refinishing department we train and qualify students to refinish accident damaged vehicles, such as cars and motorbike panels, to a high standard. The unique advantage of this course is that we also train you and assist you in developing ‘transferable skills’. These skills easily cross over into other areas of refinishing such as Vehicle S.M.A.R.T. repair techniques, industrial spraying

or plant equipment, furniture painting and many more. The list is endless!
