Bentley Releases Glasurit Refinish Training Schedule

Bentley Motors has released its training course schedule for Glasurit, the BASF refinish paint line that holds exclusive global approval for Bentley repairs. The training courses will be instructor-led for paint technicians who work within the Bentley Accredited Bodyshop Network, or are in the process of accreditation.
 
“The importance of training is crucial to proper and safe repairs—ensuring a positive customer experience,” said Jeff Wildman, BASF OEM & Industry Relations Manager. “BASF supports our collision centers by working closely with OEMs, like Bentley, to develop proper procedures that ensure refinish repairs with BASF OEM-approved products do not negatively impact operation of ADAS in today’s vehicles.”
 
Bentley Level 1 Glasurit Refinish Course (BEN100) is intended to provide paint shop technicians with a comprehensive knowledge of Glasurit products and processes including the correct application techniques approved by Bentley. This is a unique course which will focus on the requirements as described in the Bentley repair manual; concentrating on Mirror, Piano and Satin finishes.
 
Bentley Level 2 Advanced Glasurit Refinish Course (BEN200) is an advanced level course intended to provide paint shop technicians with comprehensive knowledge of the repair process application of special Glasurit finishes such as 3-stage, Liquid Mercury and Matte Clears by Bentley and correct use in the paint shop environment.
 
The following courses will be held at BASF training facilities.
