Education and training in coating technology is not only necessary for professional applicators, but also for professionals with a direct or indirect relationship to coatings. Architects, civil engineers, chemists and any professional who applies, evaluates and specifies coating products can all benefit from the IoCT’s training programmes.
Building material professionals, such as civil engineers and architects, face challenges daily related to the application and supervision of the projects they undertake. Understanding the key properties of coating, the correct application and suitability for specific applications helps achieve properly structured specifications for projects. This knowledge positively impacts the prestige and reliability of the professional preparing specifications for coating systems.
The study of standards and a true understanding of technical information accompanying paint products (such as the technical data sheet, coverage rate and safety data sheet) are just some of the key benefits of the IoCT’s training programme.
