Equipping inspection personnel, working within an aerospace-oriented organization, with the basic knowledge of how to identify basic paint defects and assess likely root causes for their occurrence is the focus of this course. Speaking descriptively about these defects using the appropriate technical terminology is also taught. The course is specifically designed to target individuals with little to no prior coatings experience, as well as seasoned aircraft coatings inspection personnel. This course is NOT designed to develop you into an Aerospace Coatings Expert, or to provide the student with a thorough technical understanding of the aerospace coatings process.

It will, however, provide you with the tools to accurately assess paint defects and determine if the defect falls within your organization’s allowable engineering tolerances. Further, this course will provide you with contemporary methods for assessing specific coatings defects and help to familiarize you with the commonly used tools, equipment, environmental requirements, specifications, and techniques to be successful with performing paint-related inspections on aircraft and aircraft components.

Who Should Attend

Professionals conducting or involved with aerospace painting activities.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, you should be familiar with and able to:

  • Identify what the major coatings defects consist of in an aerospace environment and describe them using the appropriate terminology.
  • Understand defect root cause sources and how to better identify them in an aerospace Paint Operation.
  • Distinguish between environmental, technical deficits and product failures as they relate to aerospace coatings defects.
  • Embrace the importance of documenting coatings defects per your organization’s approved protocol.
  • Emphasize the need for Aerospace Coatings Applicator certification as it pertains to process accountability and proof of technical competence.
  • Identify who to contact both internally and externally when aerospace coatings defects are beyond the scope of normal disposition.
  • Determine ways that your role as an Aerospace Coatings Inspector can become more value added to the organization in which you serve.
