Description: The Coating Applicator Specialist Exam (aka, CAS) is a written and practical (blast & spray) exam for an SSPC certification designating the minimum knowledge and skillset requirements for an Industrial Coating Applicator as described in the Joint Standard SSPC ACS 1 / NACE No. 13 Industrial Coating and Lining Application Specialist Qualification and Certification. Per a big push by IUPAT Canada and signatory contractors, CAS certification is being requested more and more industrial site owners. Length: written exam (half day) followed by blast & spray practical (an additional half day). Usually, everyone writes their CAS written on morning DAY 1, and then returns later that same week for CAS Blast & Spray Practical (generally runs the remainder of the same week)
Description: Plural Pump Training (Graco XP70 & Graco EXP2i Reactor) Level 1 is a new DC17 training program. With financial assistance from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), IUPAT District Council 17 has purchased two (2) new Plural Pump Trailers – a Graco XP70 & Graco Integrated Reactor EXP2i.
Plural Pump Training Level 1 is an introductory course to this complicated gear. Members who complete Level 1 Pump training will not be experts, but will have demonstrated basic introductory theoretical knowledge and hands-on skillsets of Plural Spray Equipment including plural coating products, start-up, operation, basic troubleshooting and repair. This is a ‘pump course’, not a ‘spray course’.
Additional Levels (Level 2 & 3) on each pump (XP70 & Reactor) are being developed to advance further the skillsets on each machine. This Level 1 course will be a prerequisite for those courses.
Length: 3-4 days depending on number of instructors and students – classroom theory & hands-on w/ written exam and practical on both plural rigs
Who should attend: any member, regardless of experience, is welcome to attend this pump training.
Enrollment: limited to ~12 max (depending on the number of instructors)
