Aerospace Coatings Applicator Certification Training


An interest in aerospace, a passion for model planes, the burning desire to be a part of the aircraft building process—whatever drives you, Embry-Riddle Worldwide can cultivate it. To better prepare you for working on aircrafts, we now offer the first certification training for Aerospace Coatings Applicators.

The course covers the fundamental scientific principles associated with the preparation and coating application for the common substrates used by manufacturers to build aircrafts.

For full certification, and to fulfill training requirements, Embry-Riddle has teamed with The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC). The SSPC Aerospace Coating Application Specialist Certification Program is designed to certify those individual craft workers who have experience and training in all aspects of hands-on surface preparation and coating application of aircraft structures, according to the requirements of the SSPC Aerospace Coating Application Specialist (ACAS) Program. This certification program also meets the requirements of EPA 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart HHHHHH.
