Whether you are an established refinishing company or just starting out, Hawk offers a comprehensive refinishing training program for all preparation, application and safety procedures for multiple applications and surfaces.

Once you've been trained, you'll be fully prepared to start serving your community with bathtub, tile and countertop refinishing of the highest quality.

But it’s not enough to just have the necessary refinishing skills. To run and grow a successful refinishing business you must be able to generate leads and convert them into sales. You must also be able to troubleshoot problems, apply marketing techniques and manage the day to day operations of your refinishing business. Fortunately, our training includes proven tactics for promoting your bathtub refinishing enterprise so that you can start winning customers from day one. And with Hawk’s unparalleled customer service and technical support, we will always be there to support you as you grow your business.


Hawk believes strongly in providing the best training experience for our customers. We do not believe that you can effectively learn to be a professional refinisher in a large group environment or in a one or two-day class. Refinishing is an art and a process. Spraying in a classroom with the guidance, support and encouragement of an experienced trainer will provide you the greatest opportunity for success.
Hawk provides a comprehensive 3-Day Training course which covers the following refinishing components:

  •  Applications and coatings selection – bath, tile and countertops
  • Comprehensive preparation and spraying techniques
  • Spray and safety equipment usage and maintenance
  • Troubleshooting and problem solving
  • Effective marketing and advertising

We can also custom design a training course to meet your specific needs or interests.
