Andover, Kan. – Today’s aerospace coatings painting professionals are constantly required to stay current on the most up-to-date products and application methods available in the maintenance repair operation industry. So when they participate in the Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings 2012 training program they will expand their skill sets, from applying new chrome and lead hazard free surface treatments and primer systems, to spraying the latest in technology-driven high-quality topcoats.
The course schedule for 2012 includes classes to be held: Jan. 31 – Feb. 1; April 17 – 18; June 19 – 20; Sept. 11 – 12; and Nov. 13 – 14. All classes will be held in the Sherwin-Williams Andover (Wichita) Kan. training facilities.
In particular, training will now include work with SKYscapes®, a new basecoat/clearcoat exterior paint system that delivers fast processing time, improved color and gloss retention, and easy maintenance. Training and mastering the SKYscapes paint system will allow aviation maintenance repair facilities and their paint shops to augment production schedules and turnaround more paint jobs.

“Our two-day training programs are designed for all levels of paint shop personnel,” said Julie Voisin, Sherwin-William Aerospace Product Manager. “New technicians can become better acquainted with our products and the best application techniques, while seasoned pros can take time to refine their skills in an actual shop setting. Our goal is to have every participant leave with inspiration and ideas to help them create the best paint jobs possible back at their own shops, on every plane, every time.”
All training sessions will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. A per-person registration fee of $299 includes classroom and hands-on training with skilled industry professionals; a training book and related materials; all necessary safety equipment; catered lunch each day; and certified training certificate.
