Industrial coatings applicators specialize in painting industrial structures to prevent deterioration. They may apply protective coatings to steel bridges to fight corrosion, or they may coat interior and exterior facilities and equipment such as storage tanks, plant buildings, lockers, piping, structural steel, and ships. NCCER and NACE International have joined forces to deliver a comprehensive industrial coating applicator training and certification program.
The two-level curriculum covers topics such as Surface Preparation, Corrosion Protection, and Containment.
