Historically, our industry has not relied on training to any great level; in fact it is fair to say that the training available at every level, from apprentice upwards has been lacking.
The opportunities that training can offer are not limited to understanding materials and products, there is a benefit to sharing ideas in a group and talking through experiences and applications that can be helpful on a number of levels. Training can be a benefit in many ways; but in the signage industry, it is just not something we tend to do.
Is this because ‘we know what we know’ and it has worked perfectly fine so far; or are we missing out on the possibility to provide customers with a better service offering, by taking the time to better understand materials, products and techniques as they become available?
Will it provide us with a more rounded approach and will experience and knowledge sharing improve our skill sets, or is it just a waste of time?
