The first Apprentice Industrial Coating Applicator Scheme students will be put through their End Point Assessments (EPAs) during mid-August. This is a fi rst for our industry and something to be reallyproud of.

Jack Tighe in association with DN Colleges and ICorr have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make it happen. Then with the recent appointment of BINDT to carry out the EPA with ICorr representation completes the groups involved. Each student has been well schooled by the Jack Tighe’s team and are now getting excited at the prospect of completion.

Training Courses

We are hoping to begin ICATS courses at Corrosion house providing restrictions continue to be relaxed, and will let you know shortly when the next course has been arranged.

Supervisor course dates will be announced shortly.

Online courses

We have been giving online ICATS access to students during lockdown with controls from the trainer, and it is hoped that this proved very useful to those who used it. This will stop on 1st September when the normal system will again operate.

Up-to-date course information can be found at www.icats-training.org
