In the presentation of technical material used in the program, frequent references are made to specific standards on topics such as test methods, inspection procedures, materials requirements, recommended practices, and performance criteria. Because the coating inspector will encounter a variety of specifications, the program incorporates standards from domestic and international standard making organizations. The Coating Inspector Program is intended to present technology reflective of the standards as well as current industry practices.

Each level of Coating Inspector Program involves a combination of lecture, demonstration, hands on training both in class and, for the Level 1 course, also at an off-site industrial facility. Case studies, practice labs, and practice quizzes are also included. Multiple qualified instructors present the courses, which conclude with both written and practical exams. Congratulations on your accomplishment!
