Painting Courses & Apprenticeships
Penn Foster Workforce Development ensures learners enrolled in our online painting courses receive in-depth painting training, from chemical safety and tool handling to plastering and stimulated painting experiences. A painting class in this program, combined with on-the-job training, can help transform any beginner into a skilled professional. The series of self-paced classes takes a measured approach, beginning with pre-technical skills and then leading into in-depth trade concepts.
