Product Training Courses
As leading industrial paint suppliers Indestructible manufacture a range of high-performance coatings for; aerospace, defence and general industrial and many more. In a majority of cases these coatings meet stringent specification requirements and therefore need to be correctly applied to sometimes very specific and controlled conditions on properly prepared substrates.
Indestructible Paint have devised a range of training programmes for our industrial coating products. These courses are tailored to meet detailed client requirements. They include the specific products involved, but will generally include:
- A basis of paint and coatings technology
- Why paint is used
- Technical characteristics of different types of coatings
- The theory of paint application
- Basic details of application equipment and its care
- Personnel protection and Health & Safety
- Detailed application information for required specific products
- Practical application instruction in customers spray shop
- Simple Quality control and evaluation of the applied coatings
A new specialist course for the new chrome free sacrificial and diffusion coatings will be available from early 2023.
Industrial Paint Coating Course
Normally courses will accommodate up to 8 trainees and will typically last for two days. With less than 4 trainees it is possible to condense the course to 1½ days. Much emphasis is placed on practical work, to ensure that all trainees are fully conversant with the requirements of the coatings being evaluated and the final technical specifications to be met.
Most clients prefer the course to be conducted within their own organisation, so as specific issues on their components can be discussed and addressed. This requires the client to provide full access to an area of their spray room for approximately 1 working day, plus the use of a suitable meeting room preferably equipped with electronic presentation equipment. Alternatively
the course can take place at the Indestructible training laboratory in Birmingham, UK, fully equipped with up to date application and curing equipment.
Following the recent COVID pandemic restrictions, we also offer “theory” only courses, given online by zoom or teams platforms, at a reduced cost of £450 per course.
A fully documented training manual is provided for each trainee detailing the full course content and allowing space for each
trainee to make their own notes.
Most clients only require ad hoc examination of the trainees on a verbal basis between tutor and trainee. However, if required, a simple multiple-choice examination can be part of the course, giving a written record of each trainee’s newly acquired skills.
A certificate of attendance, to include a record of capability of the trainee to understand the technology and application
parameters of the given course, is issued to each trainee on the successful completion of the course. This certificate can be counted towards the trainees “Continuous Professional Development (CPD)”
Our current cost for a training course for up to 8 attendees is £800 per day, plus when necessary, travel costs and subsistence costs. Within the UK travel will be by road/rail. For Europe, travel will be by air at economy rates; for long haul, travel will be by business class.
