    Do you need tailored technical training courses?

    Hempel Academy also offers technical courses that are customised to meet your particular needs. A course may consist of selected standard subjects - such as coating systems, surface treatment and paint application – or it could be specifically developed to contain particular subject matters.

    Customised courses are typically held at your premises, but can also be held our offices, or another suitable location, if you prefer.

    Customised courses are developed upon request, please contact Hempel Academy at academy@hempel.com for more information.

    To allow the necessary time for development and preparation of customised courses, Hempel Academy needs a minimum of two months’ notice. Longer notice is needed if the requested content is highly specialised.
