Nov. 7, 2013—AkzoNobel Automotive & Aerospace Coatings and the Collision Repair Education Foundation announced Wednesday the availability of new educational resources to support AkzoNobel’s Sustainability Challenge Grant.
The grant, introduced for the 2013-2014 school year, aims to encourage awareness and thinking about sustainability among students at secondary and post-secondary schools who are preparing for a career in the collision repair industry.
The new resources, available on the Education Foundation’s website, include a video series that presents principles of sustainability, as well as guidelines for instructors, a printable poster and a downloadable entry form.
Applications for the grant are currently being accepted through Dec. 18.
“The future of our industry depends on a well-trained, qualified workforce and the development of sustainable business practices,” said Clark Plucinski, executive director of the Collision Repair Education Foundation. “We are encouraged by the interest and enthusiasm shown by students in generating positive ideas to improve processes in their schools’ collision repair shops and its impact on the environment.”
