Course Description:
Members that complete this training will demonstrate the theoretical introductory knowledge and introductory hands-on skills for safe work habits and process control procedures of Plural Spray Equipment including plural costing products, start-up, operation, maintenance, troubleshooting, repair, deployment, and spray application. The Level 1 (Introductory) course is three days. It consists of ~half classroom, ~half hands-on.

Students must complete daily homework (it is graded), final exam, and practical on both pumps.

Level 1 does not make you a ‘pump guy’; two (2) more levels (Levels 2 & 3) are under development for each pump. The Level 2 & 3 student to teacher ratio will be lower.

Course Purpose:
This course will expand the pool of qualified members for signatory contractors to draw upon to competently operate this plural gear and apply these products to specification requirements of their customers’ facilities.
