“I’ve recently completed reviewing the Coatings Surveys course produced by the Corrodere Academy.

This course gives an excellent in depth view of the associated activities including; survey planning, descriptions of relevant test methods and standards, and supporting laboratory techniques for subsequent analysis of paint samples collected during your survey.

The course provides an extremely thorough overview of this complex topic. If coating surveys form part of your day to day activities then I would strongly recommend that you find out more.”
