When corrosion occurs, it can be costly; requiring metal removal, repair, or ultimately replacement or retirement. It is essential to have an effective, up-to-date corrosion prevention and control program plan in place. Failure to have and aggressively implement an effective corrosion prevention and control program will have catastrophic results.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The SSPC Aerospace Coating Application Specialist Certification Program is designed to certify those individual craft workers who have experience and training in all aspects of hands-on surface preparation and coating application to surfaces of aircraft structures, according to the requirements of the SSPC Aerospace Coating Application Specialist (ACAS) Program.

EXAM CONTENT

The SSPC Aerospace Coating Application Specialist Certification Program requires passing the hands-on exam that certifies proficiency in surface preparation and coating application using HVLP or Electrostatic spray. Candidates must wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) during the hands-on session and must be able to answer questions about troubleshooting if things go wrong with the surface preparation process, equipment, or spray pot.

A minimum grade of 90% is required on the hands-on, practical exam in order for a painter to be considered for ACAS certification.
Note: There is no written exam.
