Through a new partnership, GFS is working with Lincoln Tech to help train skilled and entry-level collision repair technicians and connect them with a range of career opportunities. Lincoln Tech students across the country learn the ins and outs of collision repair at GFS paint booths, preparing for a career in automotive bodywork through hands-on programs taught by ASE-certified instructors.
Lincoln Tech also offers a custom design and manufacturing curriculum through its Kindig Academy, an advanced six-week training program on the Denver campus for those with industry experience looking to take their higher level skills. GFS is a longtime partner with Dave Kindig and Kindig-It Design, the renowned custom vehicle builder with a sprawling store outside of Salt Lake City that includes GFS gear.
Two downdraft paint booths and a paint mixing room from GFS were recently installed at the Lincoln Tech site in Denver. The GFS equipment will then be installed at Lincoln Tech’s NADC campus in Nashville. Lincoln’s Tech’s Collision Repair and Refinishing program is also offered at the following campuses:
- East Windsor, Conn.
- Great Prairie, Texas
- Indianapolis, Ind.
- Melrose Park, Ill.
GFS will train Lincoln Tech instructors on its electric shortwave infrared technology, REVO Accelerated Curing Systems, at all Lincoln Tech campuses. Local GFS distributors will also provide parts and filter support at each Lincoln Tech location.
“Working with industry-standard equipment and materials is a key part of hands-on job training,” said Scott Shaw, president and CEO of Lincoln Tech. “For Global Finishing Solutions – one of the most respected names in automotive refinishing – providing cabs and materials to support our campuses adds tremendous value to our collision repair and refinishing programs. We are very grateful for their commitment and dedication to helping build a new generation of industry professionals.
