PRODUCTION & INSTALLATION R unning a business while keeping up with two kids, and all the details of a busy life, makes it difficult to add in one more thing. For a couple years, my husband and I had discussed having me attend a 3M wrap training class and do the testing, and for a couple years we kept putting it off. Looking back, I wish we had done the training as soon as it was available. A lot of the knowledge we acquired by trial and error could have been learned much earlier on, and with more efficient techniques. There are a lot of great training and testing programs available. Since we primarily use 3 M media we decided to go with a 3M program. Our company meets the qualifications to also become a 3M Certified Graphics Installation Company, but the train- ing and testing is only available in St. Paul, Minnesota. We chose to stay in California and do the 3M Preferred Graphics Installer training and testing at Wrapix Academy in Burbank.
