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.”
