Print this Article | Send to Colleague

SSPC has recently released two new training and certification courses:

The Industrial Coating Safety Management Course is a three-day, Instructor-Led Training (ILT) that provides participants with knowledge and skills necessary to manage a safety and health program in industrial painting operations. This course will be delivered in 17 units featuring lecture, participant engagement exercises and workshops.

The Thermal Spray Inspector Training course covers the inspection of thermal spray from pre-surface preparation through coating application. The classroom session consists of an eight-hour lecture and is supplemented by workshops in which students learn how to navigate the NAVSEA Standard Item on thermal spray and a DOT specification and complete a four-station exercise of common thermal spray inspection tests, including profile, film thickness, tensile pull-off and mandrel bend test.

Both courses will be offered in conjunction with the SSPC 2018 annual trade show and conference this coming January.
