hmm well not really the right forum for this, but it depends where you live. just google "trade schools" in your area and likely they will have automotive programs that specialize in "automotive refinishing"

Spray painting? If you want to go to school for it you need to realize that its not called spray painting. Its just painting.

Wyotech is your best bet

are you actually planning on doing this for a living or just want to do it as a hobby?

trades school are great but if you're not planning on getting a job in that field it might be a bit overkill. Some of the local tool stores here have a great automotive department and offer small beginner classes in things like painting, airbrushing, welding, etc...

What's your goals?

I'm from an asian country. I drive a subaru wrx too. I wanna learn how to do automotive spray painting and hope to open a shop in my country one day. But the problem is that my country do not have such schools to teach and the people who do spray painting here are unwilling to teach as afraid that they might lose their jobs. So i decided to go overseas to learn the skill properly. Any bros can enlighten me where to start from. I tried to find the contact of Wyotech but the information request form only serves U.S residents. So there i'm unable to fill it up and I can't find their email contacts. Cheers

Try Hot rod institute. They have options to take just the refinishing class instead of all the classes like Wyotech does. Its also only a 3 month program.
