Training of applicators is now a requirement on virtually all projects or specifications. The next step the industry will take is to move towards full certification of applicators and supervisors in compliance with ISO17024. Certification can only be granted when an applicator or supervisor has been independently assessed against a given standard.
Trainthepainter are the first training provider to meet the requirements of the above SSPC/NACE joint standard. Any applicator that completes the Gold card can take an independent assessment at one of our training centres globally and receive CAS Level 1 (Coating Applicator Specialist).
Many Oil and Gas companies are considering specifying applicator certification and NOT training.
