FAQ about PPF Training
How much does a PPF Installer make?
As with any career, this entirely depends on you. Successful paint protection film (PPF) installers working full-time easily earn $50,000/year in metropolitan areas like the GTA, with many earning much more than that. It depends on the installer’s skill level, PPF installation training he finished, motivation and the amount of work available in the given area/region.
How difficult is it to apply PPF?
With the proper 3M and XPEL PPF training and experience, paint protection film becomes easy to apply (in most cases). However, even the most experienced installers may sometimes run into a project that has them scratching their heads. The beauty of PPF is that with every new model year, you will have new vehicles to work on, and sometimes new challenges will arise. This is all part of the fun – however, in the end there is always a solution.
Is PPF a growing industry?
Outside of North America, especially in parts of Europe – PPF is the norm. Meaning, there are more new cars on the road with some sort of PPF applied to them than not. As is the case with many European trends, North America is just 1 step behind. Here, the PPF industry is growing exponentially every year, however we’re still a few years behind Europe – meaning it’s a great time to get into the industry and finish a paint protection film installation raining early and make a name for yourself. It will be harder later.
Can I become a PPF Installer in 2 days?
Can you become a concert pianist in two days? Probably not. But our two- day PPF training program will definitely set you in the right direction and develop skills, techniques and knowledge that would otherwise take you weeks, if not months, of self-learning to achieve. Look at it as a turbo boost.
What happens after the paint protection film training?
Once you’ve completed our PPF training program in Canada, you’ll be added to our pool of entry level installers, which means that we may call on you for projects as needed, pretty cool right? Even if we don’t call you for projects, or if you’re looking to open up your own paint protection film operation, you’ll have direct access to our professional paint protection film installers for 6 months for any questions, consultations or general advice to help you get going.
How much does the PPF training cost?
A full 2-day weekend of PPF installation training costs $2,000.00 + HST. Apply now to secure your spot in the next available session.
