New industry certification for aerospace coatings applicators professionals

  • 19-Oct-2011 02:52 EDT

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC), and Honda Aircraft have created the first-ever industry certification for aerospace coatings applicators professionals. SSPC and Embry-Riddle conducted the first professional training and certification of individuals involved in this aerospace coatings application. Four Honda Aircraft employees were the first to complete the certification program in late August 2011. The collaboration between Embry-Riddle, SSPC, and Honda Aircraft was driven by a common goal to lead the industry toward higher paint quality by creating a standard for quality in the preparation of an aircraft's surface and in the training of professionals to consistently achieve that standard. Embry-Riddle will offer fully online training to lead to the new Aerospace Coatings Applicators certification program beginning in January 2012.
