The Dulux Academy has expanded its nationwide reach by opening a new training facility, in partnership with Lincoln College.

This partnership comprises part of Dulux Academy’s commitment to train up 10,000 UK professionals by 2020 and was officially opened with an event for local business in the painting and decorating industry.

The new Dulux Academy will offer hands-on, engaging training courtesy of the academy’s team of industry leading experts, taking place in a learning environment designed to make the most of the experience.
