What to Expect
The information presented during this training course is intended to impart the standards for correctly applying exterior coatings. These processes cannot be fully explained without showing what can result when unacceptable procedures and materials are used or misused. It is not the intent of this course to promote the inspection and review of every completed application of exterior coatings to attribute blame and sponsor litigation.
The objective of this program is, and shall remain, the certification of students in the proper processes for installing exterior coatings, which, when used with correct materials, will produce superior results.
