Bathtub, Countertop and Cabinet Refinishing FAQ’s


Why should I choose NAPCO over other training classes?

The difference is your success. Other training outfits give you mostly classroom education with little, if any, actual spraying experience. It's like watching someone give a haircut and then trying to open your own barber shop. NAPCO graduates receive several hours of personal hands-on spray time. We are the only class taught by a former franchise trainer. We offer convenient Saturday/Sunday and weekday classes to fit your busy schedule. Plus, all NAPCO customers earn everyday discounts in our Gemstone rewards program. The more you buy, the more you save!

What type of experience does your trainer have?

Our trainer has extensive experience both refinishing and training. He is skilled at all aspects of the business, from start up to growing the business. He has done it all including leading the training division for a well respected national refinishing franchise. When people buy a franchise and spend that kind of money, the training better be good.

Exactly what is covered in the class?

3 full days, not 3 light ones - Wednesday/Thursday/Friday 3-Day Training Class.
