BCF Takes The Coatings Training Institute Global With Major Relaunch

BCF logo 2022

The British Coatings Federation (BCF) has invested in a major relaunch of its online training offer, the Coatings Training Institute (CTI), aiming to bring its technical training to many new markets around the world.

The content of all 57 training modules across four academic levels of study is being redeveloped and updated, in a fresh new format to improve the learning experience. The addition of video content will augment the tried and tested model used today, with a combination of workbooks, online assessments and written exams, all with full tutorial support. 

Tom Bowtell, Chief Executive Officer of the BCF, commented on the launch: ‘This relaunch is part of BCF’s overall strategy to be more proactive in our engagement with potential new entrants to the sector globally. Our progress to date has seen CTI training modules sold in several countries around the world, but I’m optimistic about CTI reaching many new companies and markets with its new, upgraded offer.’

As an additional benefit, BCF members receive an exclusive discount of over 25% on all modules. To recognise the launch, all learners will be able to claim an additional 10% off all modules purchased in May, using the discount code MAY10 at checkout.
