BASF Automotive Refinish Coatings
A brand of BASF - We create chemistry


BASF Automotive Refinish Coatings has launched BASF eLearning, online training courses for collision and restoration centers.

Glasurit and R-M recertification were the first courses to go digital. Certified technicians whose two-year certification is set to soon expire, can log on, take the appropriate course through online learning modules, and have their certification renewed immediately.

In addition to course access, technicians have individual profiles that enable BASF to send advanced reminders regarding expiring certifications, and suggest additional courses such as BASF’s Color Adjustment Techniques or Time Reduction Repair.

“Restructuring our program and offering select courses online allows us to keep our customers at peak efficiency,” said BASF Training Manager Sebastian Grajales. “They can now learn at their own pace, ensuring that they keep their skills at a high level, while minimizing the time they are pulled out of the booth.

“Providing course content online to our customers helps ensure that they have all of the knowledge necessary for proper repairs, and they have the right training and certifications that the premier shops and premier consumers expect,” said Grajales.

BASF’s online training launch in Q3 will be followed by enhanced offerings in Q4 2018 online. New specialty courses will launch, too, at the BASF North American Competency Centers.

“BASF is uniquely positioned to support the safe-car initiative demanded by drivers due to our market-leading OEM certifications, ” said US Sales Director for BASF Automotive Refinish Troy Neuerburg. “Providing the right training to meet and exceed OEM and driver expectations in a more accessible form will promote our premier customers, elevating them above and beyond competition in their markets.”

BASF Announces New eLearning

BASF’s product portfolio includes products for multiple industries. A product that is compliant for one region, industry, application or end use, may not be compliant for another region, industry, application or end-use, and BASF accordingly disclaims all representations, conditions and warranties of fitness for a particular purpose.

To assist automotive refinish customer searching for information about BASF products that meet the VOC limits for automotive refinish use, BASF provides Wall Charts that list the products that are compliant with the automotive refinish VOC regulations in specific regions in North America (country, province, state, air districts). It is the responsibility of the purchaser/end-user to ensure they know and understand the regulations for their specific region, industry, application and end use and ensure that the products that they are using are compliant with all applicable regulatory requirements and any permits specific to their business.
