The Jacksonville, Fla.-based Window Tint School is set to begin classes soon.

Two entrepreneurs are going to use their skills to train others to open their own window film shops.

Jon Dewar and Darren Fettik are starting the Window Tint School, located in Jacksonville, Fla.

Dewar and Fettik have been in the industry for a combined total of more than 50 years. They believe there is a shortage of qualified window tinters not just locally, but nationally, so they will open the school to help fill the gap.

“Window Tint School is aimed at being the first truly dedicated window tint school in a completely 100 percent non-retail environment. We believe that offering a very structured window tint curriculum meant we can provide our students with the time and attention needed to learn how to properly tint windows. This is hands-on training where students learn about different films and techniques in a classroom environment,” according to the company’s website.

The school has two three-day classes: Boot Camp and Money Maker.

Tinters will be trained on car windows of all kinds

“Boot Camp” is where attendees will “learn film from A to Z,” including the laws governing the industry as well as installation techniques.

The “Money Maker” class is where students will learn how to be owners, managers and marketers of window film businesses. Attendees will learn search engine optimization and advertising basics, presentation and salesmanship, sales strategies for both automotive and flat glass, as well as managing relationships with vendor partners.

“Window tinting professionals are getting farther and fewer between,” says Dewar. “Within window tinting, there are several categories that offer specialty retailers huge profit opportunities. It’s our objective to take those that are in the business and make them better as well as take those that are not in the business and get them involved.”
