With 75% of the available places booked in the first 12 hours after launch, more workshops and titles are being scheduled. Early indications show popular courses are colour, business skills and paint basics including ‘What is paint’ and ‘Exploring Exteriors’.

Vickie Mather, Dulux Academy Lead, says: “The Coronavirus pandemic has had a really significant effect on a vast amount of businesses and individuals working in the painting and decorating industry. Many have been forced to completely down tools amid the current lockdown restrictions. Dulux Academy has been no exception as we’ve had to cancel face to face courses and seek to re-establish ourselves.

“At Dulux Academy we want to ensure we continue to support painters and decorators in the new digital world.

“All decorators will need is the ability to access a video link and we’ll be able to help them hone valuable skills as they adapt to working in the new normal.”
