Speak­ing at the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony for the 2015 Du­lux Painters Academy, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor CAP Plc Mrs. Omo­lara Elemide, de­scribed the Du­lux Painters Academy as an in­ten­sive and prac­ti­cal train­ing for youth with a min­i­mum of Se­nior School Cer­tifi­cate.

Elemide noted that the ini­tia­tive is one of the sev­eral ways through which CAP Plc gives back to the so­ci­ety, which would help re­duce un­em­ploy­ment rate in the coun­try.

She also dis­closed that the train­ing cov­ered mod­ules such as Paint Tech­nol­ogy and Ap­pli­ca­tion, Quan­tifi­ca­tion, Colour Psy­chol­ogy, Com­mon Paint Prob­lems and So­lu­tions, Pro­fes­sional Ethics, En­tre­pre­neur­ial and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills. The trainees also had a three week field at­tach­ment with al­ready es­tab­lished pro­fes­sional painters.

“The Du­lux Painters Academy by CAP Plc of­fers a rare op­por­tu­nity for young peo­ple who de­sire to earn a liv­ing through paint­ing to learn the craft dur­ing the eightweek in­ten­sive ap­pren­tice­ship pro­gramme and paint their way to a bet­ter life,” she said.
