Virtual learning at Dulux Decorator Centres

Dulux Decorator Centre is introducing free in-store virtual learning featuring Dulux Academy training modules in nine of its stores, with the launch of Dulux Academy Virtual. The programme expands on the merchant’s existing partnership with the Dulux Academy – which has face to face training facilities at five Dulux Decorator Centre stores – making industry-leading training more accessible to customers across the country. 

Dulux Academy Virtual provides access to virtual training solutions in-store via the Dulux Academy Hub. The programme will provide pre-recorded content, as well as access to live streaming sessions and a chance for customers to try the products to support their learning. There will also be the opportunity for participants to test products themselves as part of the learning process, and Dulux Decorator Centre colleagues will also be on hand to answer any questions.
