The PCA is enabling young workers to enter the paint trade with the help of the Education Foundation.
Thanks to the donation from Benjamin Moore the PCA was able to produce the Trade Best Practice Series which serves as a foundational tool for on-the-job training. Available to 300,000+ painting contractors, companies have the ability to show on-demand video to new trainees.
The PCA continues to develop training material thanks to the sponsorship from our national friends and partners.
Promoting The Paint Trade
To tackle the labor crisis young people and displaced workers must become aware that painting is a viable career path. With the help of the PCA Education Foundation Fund we are able to raise awareness and attract new workers to the trade.
The PCA scholarships were originally established in 1978 and are open to any high school senior or college-age student seeking to further their education. Students seeking to further education at a college or university are welcome to apply for the Education Scholarship and students seeking a career in the painting industry are welcome to apply for the Vocational Scholarship.

The curriculum we are developing includes a video-based basic painting instruction and onboarding series designed to help our members find, train, and put to work, unskilled or inexperienced painters. To do that, we need your monetary support and commitment of support.
We are committed to showing tradesmen and potential painters that the construction trades lead to a viable and rewarding career path. Join us in making this promise to the future of our industry.
