Part I of the course is provided online over a two-day period in a virtual classroom with a live instructor. In these first two days, you will learn the theory of coatings which includes:
- An introduction to coating fundamentals
- Coating types and curing mechanisms
- Specifications and standards
- And the role of the inspector
Students will receive the same manual, reference material, and coursework such as exercises, quizzes, and activities as in our traditional in-person classroom courses.
You will perform the in-person, real-world labs with your instructor face-to-face in an actual coatings lab. Practical sessions are now being scheduled in adherence with CDC and WHO guidelines so you can complete Part ll of the blended program. These are being offered at coatings facilities around the world.
