Coating Inspector Program

Coating Inspector Program - Level 2

CIP Level 2 focuses on advanced inspection techniques and specialized application methods for both steel and non-steel substrates, including concrete using both nondestructive and destructive techniques. Surface preparation, coating types, inspection criteria, lab testing, and failure modes for various coatings, including specialized coatings and linings are also covered.

Classroom instruction is comprised of lectures, discussions, group exercises, and hands-on labs. Students will also participate in case studies based on real-life situations and practices of a coatings inspector.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain advanced corrosion theory as it applies to the role of cathodic protection when used with coatings
  • Identify types of environmental controls and inspection concerns associated with the use of digital electronic hygrometers, data loggers, and wind speed monitors
  • Identify standards, methods of use, and inspection concerns for centrifugal blast cleaning and water-jetting equipment
  • Recognize the importance of surface preparation, application, and inspection of liquid-applied and thick barrier linings
  • Utilize destructive coating inspection equipment, such as adhesion and hardness testers, pH meters and ultrasonic thickness and eddy-current dry film thickness gauges
  • Recognize the methods of use, standards, and inspection concerns for specialized application equipment including plural-component, electrostatic and centrifugal, and hot spray systems
  • Recall concrete coating techniques, concerns and test instruments used for inspection
  • Identify specialized coating techniques and application of non-liquid coatings including powdered coatings, spray metalizing, hot-dip galvanizing and automated coatings application
  • Distinguish between different coating survey techniques, procedures, and common coating failure modes
  • Describe maintenance coating operations, as well as health and safety concerns in relations to the inspector’s work conditions
