The new ICATS course material launched in November is proving to be a great success, with positive feedback received from all the Trainers that have started to present the new course modules.
We are pleased to announce the appointment of two new Approved Training Centres, K M Decorating Ltd in London and Survivex in Aberdeen. These ATCs are in areas where previously we were not able to offer Training to ICATS Registered Companies that don’t have in-house Trainers.

ICATS is also introducing the new ICATS Managers/Engineers Industrial Coating Awareness course. This is a structured training module for managers, engineers, specifiers and anyone that would benefit from an understanding of coating application.

The module covers the following subjects:
Health and Safety in Industrial Painting
Preparation Standards
Blasting and Abrasives
Mechanical and manual preparation
Other surface preparation methods
Painting Specification
Toolbox talks
Paint technology
Scale of Nobility
Convertible and Non-Convertible Coatings
Over-painting existing paint systems
Paint Manufacturers
Paint Faults
QC and QA

The Industrial Coating Applicator (ICA) faces many issues within Industrial Coatings. It is recognised that the ICA role can be misunderstood, leading to a potentially dangerous situation or misinterpretation and expectation of what can or can’t be achieved. This is a one-day classroom based presentation. Courses will take place at our Northampton training facility and other locations.
