Twenty-five graphic installers have earned Avery Dennison car wrap certification in the U.S. and Canada so far this year, according to the Mentor, Ohio-based company (see detailed list below). The certification involves a two-part test that includes a written exam and a hands-on vehicle wrap installation demonstration.
Avery Dennison-certified installers receive a free listing on the company’s CarWraps.net directory, a website that connects consumers and small businesses can find professional vehicle wrap installers.
The Avery Dennison/Mutoh Car Wrap Training classes are taught by Justin Pate, a graphic installer with more than 16 years of experience.
Avery Dennison will lead two installer certification training classes this year: Oct. 28-30 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and Nov. 9 in Auburn, Wash. For more information, visit Avery Dennison’s website.
