Founded in 1904, the Painting & Decorating Contractors of California is one of the oldest trade organizations in California.  Our core goals are to promote and advocate on behalf of licensed painting contractors, to offer services and programs that make it easier for contractors to manage their business, and to provide safety and educational opportunities for our contractor members and their employees.

SAFETY – PDCC can provide you with many of the safety programs, training, resources and materials you will need to help reduce workplace accidents and to maintain compliance with OSHA regulations.  We regularly offer safety training & certification programs throughout the state which are typically free to our contractor members and significantly reduced for your employees.

EMPLOYEE TRAINING – PDCC provides safety training and certification programs throughout the state and at our Annual Convention.

LEADERSHIP – PDCC is a member-driven association. You’ll find many ways and different levels of participation in our organization from the local to the state level.

BRANDING – Members are permitted to use the PDCC logo on their advertising, forms, and vehicles. The logo lets your clients know that you are part of a professional organization.

INDUSTRY STANDARDS – PDCA sets the national standards for the painting profession. The “Industry Standards” are FREE to members.
