The course content goes beyond the fundamental aspects of the coating process and associated inspection activities. It aims to provide participants with comprehensive knowledge and skills to effectively manage all aspects of coatings, starting from understanding the basic composition of coating products to developing the closeout report of a completed coating project.

Course Objectives:

The summary of the course objectives are:

  • Participants will learn by active interaction during the program through the use of exercises, syndicate, and group discussion on the program topics and real-life issues.
  • Course size will be limited to 20 delegates to allow effective coverage, stimulate group discussion, and enable instructor-to-delegate interaction.
  • Throughout the course, delegates will be encouraged to discuss their organization-specific problems, seek group views and guided to develop their own corrective action agenda for implementation upon return to their workstations.
  • The handout materials do not only include the 350 plus PowerPoint slides but also include a carefully designed text of over 200 pages which explained all technical matters discussed during the 5 days course.
