College Works Painting does everything possible to ensure the greatest amount of success is achieved by each intern participating in the program. We start by training our interns, and we’re talking thorough and intensive training. The entire Minnesota team, students from Minnesota State University Mankato, St. Cloud State University, University of MinnesotaDuluth, University of Minnesota Twin Cities, and Winona State University, get together for formal intern training and paint training. The intern training covers business topics such as marketing, selling, booking work, interacting with clients, payroll projections, and managing the profitability of the intern’s business. Paint trainings, on the other hand, cover all aspects of painting a home properly. This includes color selection, paint application, pre-painting preparation work, OSHA regulated safety practices, and managing a crew of house painters in Bloomington. The trainings make it possible for the interns to be successful and for homeowners to receive a top quality paint job.
