In Person Tint Training Versus Online Training
Window tinting is a technical skill that requires a lot of repetition to master. While there are many online resources available to learn window tinting, the importance of in-person training cannot be overstated.
Virtual training has become increasingly popular due to its convenience and cost-effectiveness. However, learning window tinting virtually does not provide the same level of hands-on experience that in-person training does. It is crucial to be able to physically work with the tools and materials to develop the muscle memory necessary to perform the job effectively.
When learning in person, students have the opportunity to work with professionals who can guide them through the process, answer questions, and provide feedback in real-time. This immediate feedback is critical for learning and improving upon techniques. In contrast, virtual training often lacks this level of personalization, making it difficult for students to receive the same level of guidance and feedback.
Furthermore, in-person training provides students with the chance to interact with their peers, network, and build relationships within the industry. Learning alongside others who share a passion for window tinting can create a sense of camaraderie and provide opportunities for collaboration and professional growth.
In-person training also allows students to work in a controlled environment, providing them with access to all of the necessary tools and materials. This is not always the case when learning virtually, as students may not have access to the same equipment or supplies. This can result in a lack of confidence when it comes to executing techniques on their own, hindering their ability to provide high-quality work.
In conclusion, while virtual training can be a great starting point, it is essential to recognize the importance of in-person training when it comes to learning window tinting. The hands-on experience and immediate feedback provided by professionals are critical for developing the muscle memory and skills necessary to perform the job effectively. In-person training also provides opportunities for networking and collaboration within the industry. To truly master the art of window tinting, investing in in-person training is a wise decision.
Unfortunately not everyone can do in person training. I personally reached out to many businesses in our state and surrounding states that were willing to do it, but prices were above my budget at the time. I even had one trainer tell me they only deal with professionals after being referred to them by another person I respected. So that was discouraging at the time. Had another company require a high purchase of their product before they even considered us. Then I found an online class that was in my budget and went from their. Now I work at a box store, and surprisingly, do as well as the other tinters that went to hands on training with a well known company. I may be one of few that have been semi-successful, but online can be good if you get the right program and put in the work to practice. Especially if that online program has a good network to communicate with. Would I love hands on training? Absolutely. Now it would be to sharpen my newly acquired skills. My experience is probably rare, but hands on training with an instructor didn’t work out for me to get started in this trade.
