Effective February 27, 2015 Dunkman Paint & Wallcovering, LLC (DPW) started providing an educational opportunity for our ESL (English as a Second Language) employees. Each Friday we are offering select employees a free class in “Written and Verbal Communication in the Business World”. These classes are part of DPW’s continuing effort to provide our staff with the skills and knowledge to grow with the company and to better serve our customers. Thus expanding our production capacity to document the work.

DPW feels this program is unique in that as a painting contractor the program will give individuals with little or no language skills the opportunity to learn better English skills for the general business world and that are unique to the painting industry to allow them to progress in their chosen field. It is the belief of the DPW management team that there is a large pool of employees who have the work ethic, abilities, and intelligence to move upward in the industry but are simply held back by an inability to communicate professionally. This program will be a game changer for the employees and for Dunkman Paint & Wallcovering, LLC

Dunkman Paint & Wallcovering President, Paul Dunkman stated “We are very excited to offer this program to our field team as this is a critical component for our craftsman to allow them to progress in their own capacity and job description within the commercial construction industry.”

Stephanie Lancaster an Adjunct Instructor at Valencia College will be conducting the classes. Ms. Lancaster a former Adjunct Instructor at the University of Central Florida brings years of multilingual instruction to the Dunkman Paint & Wallcovering Team.

Ms. Lancaster added “I am happy to be a part of this initiative at DPW. It is an excellent chance for me to help those who may otherwise not have the resources to further their knowledge of the English language.”

DPW, a Professional Paint Contracting Company, has proudly been serving the Central Florida area for over 19 years. DPW has become a premier Commercial Paint Contractor for many Orlando General Contractors, building owners and management companies. As, a PDCA Accredited Contractor, DPW has the knowledge and trade education to continuously and systematically provide customers with professional service and application.
