Industrial Coating

Industrial Painters apply protective coatings and linings to multiple surfaces such as bridges, water-tanks, petrochemical industries, refineries, pipelines, off shore derricks, military installations, stadiums, and port cranes. Different coating preparation and application includes abrasive blast and hydro blasting. Protective coating could be applied by brush, roller, or spray devices.

Upon completion of the Apprenticeship program you will receive a California State and Federally recognized completion certificate along with OSHA training and the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) certificates.
