"If I had taken this course at the beginning of my career it would have saved me tons of time and trial and error in developing green habits as a painter. This course will not only save paint companies money in terms of supplies and employee health, but will lead to new customers as well. Even if you are not specifically a painter, if you have a career of any kind in the green building industry this course is a great way to advance your knowledge in ecofriendly practices and products."​ - Matt Trimble, NSW
"I really enjoyed this course it was professionally presented and very informative. This is an essential course for all painters and regardless of whether you are able to fully or partially implement all of the sustainable strategies you will learn, each of us has an obligation to try and improve our environmental work practices to help maintain a balance in the environment we all share. " - John O'Sullivan Vic Wide Painting Service​
