Classes & Seminars


Powder-X Coating Systems takes training very seriously and offers the only hands-on training available in the industry. Proper training on the techniques and regulations is essential to the success of any new or experienced business professional. The powder coating industry is no exception, and that is why Powder- X is committed to providing the best-multifaceted training course for individuals that are as serious about powder coating as we are.

Why Should You Attend Our Training Course?

Powder-X training is unique because it is personally taught and coached by our owner and industry expert, Joey Golliver. Having been in the powder coating industry since 1986, Golliver’s knowledge and expertise are unmatched in the industry.  While others have sold equipment or consumables and call themselves trainers, Joey has actually done ALL of that as well as OWNED powder coating businesses.  He always says that he has “made mistakes that have cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars”.  So who better to learn from than someone who has walked in your shoes, can show you how he became successful, and can help you avoid the mistakes that he made?

The Powder-X Coating Systems Training extends over a Friday and a partial day on Saturday.

On Friday, all the BASICS are discussed. How does powder work, what makes it do what it does, how does the equipment really work, what are the misconceptions and misinformation that cost coaters THOUSANDS of dollars per month…..etc? You will also go learn much about the business side of operating and marketing your powder coating business from someone who has done over $50 million personally in the industry!

On Saturday morning, we put everything you’ve learned to work. You will take a part that you bring and take it through each step, from cleaning to coating to curing.  This also gives you a great opportunity to watch others while all of you receive hands-on hints and instruction.


A Training Course through Powder-X opens the door to success for those serious about the powder coating industry.

“Awesome experience! From the first introduction over the phone to the last day of training, these guys have been nothing but professionals with a lot of knowledge to share about the coating industry.

“The training class was far more than I expected. You gave me insight and knowledge and took away all questions and fear I had starting a powder coating business. Thank you!”
– James H. of Illinois

“I was looking for a way out of 15 years in a foundry, and stumbled across powder coating. My curiosity was sparked. After research online, I decided to attend Powder-X training. It was a very informative and helpful class. Thus my adventure in powder coating began. The staff of Powder-X, especially Joey Golliver, was extremely knowledgeable of products they sold or recommended. They were up-front with everything from sales to setup. If they were unable to help you, they gave you the name and number of a person who could answer your questions. They recommended excellent companies to work with for the products you need to start your business. Powder-X is a very confident and trustworthy staff of people who care about making your business a success. I walked into this blind and having Joey Golliver as my lifeline was great. Whether it was water issues, waste management or equipment, he got me through everything. If not for his knowledge and expertise I would have been lost. I personally thank Joey and the Powder-X staff. I look forward to a successful business while working with only Powder-X. I highly recommend them to anyone thinking of getting into the business.”
– Jeff M. of Wisconsin

“Joey knows the material and knows how to present it. My goal in taking this class is to be able to open my own business. The information with the hands-on, in my opinion, is priceless. Joey is always willing to answer questions and show you.”
– Kent S. of Indiana

“I found the class to be very well taught. We traveled a long way and found it to be well worth the trip.”
– Don P. of Georgia
