Highly Trained and Highly Skilled Painters
The Dependable Painting Company maintains an exceptionally skilled, full-time staff of 40 union painters. From apprentice to journeyman to foreman – all are highly trained in safety and today’s best practices in painting.
Our company is committed to a 4-year apprenticeship program for new painters. Apprentices work in the field; receiving on-the-job training. They also attend classes to receive book and skills training by competent instructors. Additionally, they are able to earn college credit. The apprenticeship is a union program, of which President Cindy Friedmann sits on the board. Upon graduation, becoming journeyman, these successful painters stay employed with The Dependable Painting Company for many years.
Safety Training & Continuing Education
The Dependable Painting Company makes the safety of their employees the utmost priority of the organization. They host a yearly training seminar for all of their painters, led by industry specialists and certified instructors. All foremen are required to have OSHA 30.
All painters are trained in first aid, respirator fit, scaffolding and high lift, lead awareness, MSDS, lock out/tag out, and drug awareness. The Dependable Painting Company is a drug-free workplace.
The painters also take part in continuing education classes; both safety training and journeyman upgrading skills. Topics of study include updating skills in wall covering, floor finishes, wood finishing, faux finishing, and application of specialty coatings.
“We are extremely proud of our painters who are all highly-trained union professionals,” states company president, Cindy Friedmann.
