Course overview

This ICorr Level 2 course is designed to equip inspectors with the necessary knowledge and skills to perform their role effectively in the coatings industry. Inspectors are expected to liaise between parties and observe surface preparation and coating activities. This ICorr accredited course focuses on the responsibilities and duties of an inspector, and the importance of ensuring work is completed in accordance with specifications to obtain a high-quality paint job.

Inspectors are required to have knowledge of surface treatments, including in-house and on-site facilities, and should be aware of potential difficulties in working within these environments.
