Any candidate may elect to attend all or any selected parts of the course. However, if certification is sought under the ICorr Scheme there are only two options:
(1) Providing ICorr Painting Inspector certification is held (any level), the candidate must attend all three days of the course to be eligible to attempt the Metallic Coatings Inspector Level 2 examination.
(2) Candidates must attend the first two days of the course to be eligible to attempt the Hot Dip Galvanizing Inspector Level 2 examination, i.e. candidates without any form of ICorr certification may attempt this examination.


Painting Inspector Transition
BGAS-CSWIP Painting Inspector to
ICorr Painting Inspector

Duration: 1 day

Description
This is one of a series of combined 1 day courses and examinations for painting inspectors certificated under other schemes and who wish to gain recognition under the ICorr scheme. These intensive courses concentrate mainly on those topics and basic approaches in training which are different in the various other schemes compared with the level of ICorr desired by the candidate. The courses finish with short written (and practical, where appropriate) examinations. The aim of this concept is to ensure similar scope and depth of subject topics has been taught to all ICorr certificate holders irrespective of the scheme from which they may have transitioned. This will help bring parity and harmonisation between schemes, for the ultimate benefit of both professional painting inspectors and their customers. This course is designed to accommodate BGAS-CSWIP Grade 3, 2 or 1 inspectors who wish to transition to ICorr. Level 1 or Level 2 ICorr qualification may be gained by this route and depends on the level of competence demonstrated by the candidate in examination at the end of the course.
