Akzonobel sponsors Painting Skills Legacy Workshop 2011

The parent company of Dulux Trade, AkzoNobel, has been announced as the title sponsor for the 2011 Painting Skills Legacy Workshop, in association with The International Association of Painting Contractors (UNIEP). Taking place between 30th May and 1st June in Amsterdam, the event will bring together painting professionals and trainees from around Europe and demonstrate the very latest in painting skills.

Places at the event are highly sought after as only three people from each UNIEP member country will be invited to take part. In order to enter, trainees must be on the EQF Level 2 equivalent in their national training programme and master painters must have ten years’ experience or EQF Level Four equivalent in national training.

The three day workshop and social networking event will offer an insight into delivering low-carbon, eco-friendly master finishes that transform buildings inside and out. The event will also leave a lasting impression on the local community through a painting project which will see trainees and professionals partner up on an assignment to transform a school in the suburbs of Amsterdam.
