Training Videos

We create original, informative training videos in-house at our very own Mid America Specialty Services Productions, located in our corporate office.

State-of-the-art cameras and editing equipment let us quickly make professional-grade videos covering a range of topics. That means our employees are always up-to-date on the latest refinishing techniques and products. 

Classroom Training

With some topics nothing beats a good instructor-led training session from our own subject matter experts…our own employees! We cover a number of topics from the latest refinishing techniques and management skills.

Throughout the year, our master refinishers share their wisdom with all employees in our offices around the country. From time to time, we hear from nationally-recognized industry experts and consultants. Many employees also have the opportunity to attend specialized schools to sharpen their skills.

Printed Materials

Technology is great, but sometimes it’s best to have a good old-fashioned handbook or printed training material.

From the very first publication of our original “Metals Refinishers Handbook,” we have continuously developed up-to-date handbooks to facilitate the training process. All team members receive an informative New Employee Handbook on day one. Employees who are ready to advance their careers must pass a rigorous printed test to move up the ladder in Operations.
