TEACH Construction and Benjamin Moore are partnering for the second consecutive year to bring high-quality training to the painting trades through instructional resources and online training.

At TEACH Construction, our primary goal is to create and distribute Instructional Resources to those engaged in training the current and next generation of painters – and deliver these assets at no cost to employers and educators.  To meet this goal, we create tools that employers/educators need, including lesson plans, presentations, narrated presentations, knowledge review tools, and hands-on skills exercises that align with industry approved training competencies.  These Instructional Resources provide students with the knowledge and skills that are in demand by today’s employers.  An example of these resources can be accessed on the course description page 

We have created instructional content for both of our resource offerings.  

The training resources are added to our open Educational Resource Library

The investment by Benjamin Moore will provide free access to the Fundamentals of Painting series on TradeSkillsU.com for the next 12 months. 

"Benjamin Moore is committed to supporting the communities we serve through workforce development and educational programs focusing on trade skills, architecture, interior design and more,” said Craig Bunting, Benjamin Moore Director, Customer Segments. “We are proud to support TEACH Construction for the second consecutive year to provide free instructional resources to educators as well as independent painters and contractor businesses.”

In addition to creating the Instructional Resources, we also provide tools to deliver training in a hybrid online/hands-on environment. 

This means we can deliver our learning assets in a format ready to be loaded on a partners Learning Management System (LMS) – or the partner can utilize our LMS at www.TradeSkillsU.com

Our Fundamentals of Painting course includes 3 main sections.
