New Spanish-Language Courses Available from SSPC

June 24, 2019

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings is pleased to announce the availability of Spanish language versions of the training courses Using SSPC PA 2 Effectively (PA2)  and Fundamentals of Protective Coatings (C1) e-course .

PA 2 is a half-day workshop that summarizes and explains the key highlights of “SSPC PA 2: Measurement of Dry Coating Thickness with Magnetic Gauges”. In this class, students learn to verify the accuracy of a DFT magnetic gauge; measure the DFT of a coating with Type 1 or Type 2 gauge; and describe and implement the procedure to determine if the film thickness in a given area conforms to the maximum and minimum levels specified. The Spanish version is available exclusively in Mexico, and both English and Spanish will be available as online courses in early 2020.  Like many of our programs, there is great demand to access the materials in multiple languages. We are working as fast as possible to translate and rollout relevant content based on the demand of our members. If you are looking for translated materials, please contact, or speak to your favorite SSPC staff person and we’ll let you know what is available!

In addition to PA 2 in Spanish, SSPC recently released the Spanish version of the popular C 1 e-course! C 1 provides a practical and comprehensive overview of coatings for those who are new to the protective coatings industry. It is also an ideal refresher for reviewing the fundamentals of corrosion and the use of coatings as a protective mechanism against corrosion and deterioration of industrial structures.

C 1 information is available at
