Mega Rust is an annual event that began in June 2005 and rotates among several locations to reach a broader audience and to best meet the needs of the U.S. Navy. This conference brings together government, military, owners, operators, shipyards, research facilities, and coatings manufacturers and suppliers to discuss issues pertinent to the preservation industry.


  • Present the Fleet and industry's needs in areas of preservation
  • Highlight new and innovative preservation technologies/methods, successful applications of new products, research and development, preservation of materials, environmentally compliant processes, and lessons learned
  • Develop and maintain an infrastructure to provide essential feedback loops between the Fleet and industry that will facilitate the transfer of technologies presently available
  • Focus on partnership opportunities between the Fleet and industry
  • Provide training opportunities to Fleet and industry

SSPC Training and Certification

SSPC Training and Certification programs are high quality learning opportunities that won’t gouge your budget. Every program currently offered requires six days or fewer to complete – a key feature that minimizes time away from the job. In addition, SSPC’s online training library continues to expand as we look for ways to make training more convenient for our  members. Finally, our programs are among the most flexible in the coatings industry in that we allow students to not only use previous SSPC training toward qualifying for certifications, but also certain non-SSPC programs that have been completed.
