As part of our skills training outreach to Ft McMurray, in the 2016/2017 Off-Season, IUPAT DC 17 offered two  SSPC C1 Fundamentals of Protective Coatings . One at Aluma Systems (December 2016) and a second at CEDA (January 2017). The feedback was great. Guys enjoyed it. For DC 17, C1 is our universal ‘go to’ course; in our opinion, every industrial painter should take C1 at some point.
Going forward, DC 17 wants to do more of this sort of thing. For the upcoming 2017/2018 Off-Season, we have scheduled SSPC C1 December 8 – 12 2017, immediately followed by SSPC C2 December 13 – 17, 2017. One of the challenges is the lack of a training centre in Ft McMurray. So, we are really dependent on contractors to host. If you are interested in hosting these December courses at your facility, please contact Chris Hooter, Director of Training, 204.943.2497 , email@example.com
