On Tuesday and Wednesday , October 13 and 14 Danielle Hostetter and Jamie Holzschuh attended the PPG training center in Columbus Ohio to be evaluated for the DTRC . (Distributor Tech Rep Certification) After successfully passing Phase 1 which is a written (online ) test, candidates are then evaluated in a two day , rigorous , ” Hands on” evaluation which covers product knowledge , testing, troubleshooting , surface prep, cleaning , and application of coatings. 

I’m happy to report that both Dani and Jamie passed with flying colors!

That means that all 5 Members of the Colours Tech Team are PPG Certified Distributor Tech Reps!

Some interesting facts are, as of this week, there are only 202 certified Distributor Tech Reps in the Country , and even more special, our very own Danielle is the FIRST FEMALE to complete this certification!! And if that’s not impressive enough, she is also one of a very few that has also completed the Commercial Distributor Tech Rep Certifcation!


Congratulations , to Jamie and Danielle on a job well done !!
