Earlier this month the IWRC's trainers visited the John Deere facility in Ottumwa to conduct one-day painter training classes. Two classes were held, one on October 7 and a second on October 16. The classes consisted of classroom training on equipment and coatings followed by hands-on simulation training using the VirtualPaint.
This training was preceded by a similar class at John Deere Harvester Works in East Moline back in July. Classes were held daily throughout the week with 4-6 painters participating each day.
