What Our Students Say

“Being in the booth is quite zen to be honest. You just get in with the panel that you’re going to be spraying, your spray gun all hooked up, mask down, and you’re just away with your own thoughts, spraying away until you get the job done. It’s quite peaceful, like if you do go in there and you do have any negative thoughts or anything like that, you’ll come out and leave and you’ll have peace of mind by then.”
