ICATS and Train the Painter

Jack Tighe Ltd is an approved ICATS and Train the Painter training provider, registered to train all current modules including the Abrasive Blasting and Spray Painting specialist modules.

Our inhouse Certified Trainers are currently working on painting projects; in addition to teaching delegates the theory, they are able to instruct them in the practical application – drawing on many years’ experience in the coatings industry.
We have approved 5 Star training facilities at our Head Office in Kirton Lindsey, Lincolnshire and our factory at Foxhills, Scunthorpe where we carry out practical assessments. We can offer training at customer sites where required.
Our training programmes are flexible to meet individual customer requirements and workloads.
