Columbus, Ohio-based Simonton Windows partnered with national color expert Kate Smith, CMG of Sensational Color, to offer a comprehensive color certification program for contractors. The free eight-course program allows builders and remodelers to earn a Color Certification designation from Sensational Color that can help them grow their business.
According to Simonton, similar courses available from Smith on her Sensational Color website carry fees of at least $1,500 per course. Builders and contractors who take the courses for free through Simonton University are receiving courseware valued at approximately $12,000 at no cost.
Offered exclusively through Simonton University, members of Simonton ProNetwork program can register to take four “Color Core Training” courses followed by four additional “Color for Home Exteriors” courses. The online courses are available at learn.simonton.com in the Technical School section of Simonton University. The first three courses are now available online and include “Understanding Color,” “Color Theorist” and “Color Psychology, Symbolism and Meaning.”
“I’ve developed this Sensational Color Certification Program exclusively for Simonton Windows so that ProNetwork members visiting the Simonton University site can equip themselves with a widespread understanding of the importance color plays in the building and remodeling industry,” said Smith, owner of Sensational Color.
