April 30, 2011 Topkote Products, distributors of tub reglazing paint and equipment for professional refinishers, announces the launch of its exclusive bathtub refinishing training program and facility proudly called Topkote University." The Topkote University training program is a certification program designed to simulate real world tub reglazing situations and will give a trainee the understanding necessary to succeed in the industry. Owner of Topkote Products, Bob Alexander said: Lately, we have been re-training refinishers that were trained by other companies. When we asked the trainees why they came to us, they said the lack of hands-on and general understanding of process left them feeling unsure of themselves to perform on their own. So, it only makes sense to build a program that will give them what they need." George Piccot, Head of the Bathtub Refinishing Association of America adds: The bathtub refinishing industry has been in need of such a program for years...The Topkote University Bathtub Refinishing Training Program has already received positive feedback from those who have trained: I now feel like I can go out and actually do a job on my own and not worry whether I am doing it right or wrong...Topkote University will see continued development and growth with additional features into 2011. Topkote Products, located in Ridgefield, New Jersey, has been in the product distribution industry for over 20 years and focuses on two primary functions, to supply quality products and provide excellent customer service.
