Becoming a coating inspector through the ACA is an excellent means of upskilling whilst furthering career and professional development. AMPP describes the coating inspector’s role as a, “quality control technician.” The ACA offers two levels of coating inspecting qualifications (CIP1 and CIP2).
Level 1 teaches the basic skills to allow practitioners to apply the basic principles of technology of coating application and inspection. It is the world’s most recognised and specified inspection certification program and is considered an industry standard for practitioners. There are no prerequisites for sitting a CIP1 course.
Level 2 teaches the advanced skills required to allow practitioners to apply techniques and specialised application for both steel and non-steel substrates, including specialised coatings and linings. For the advanced level, like CIP1, it is the world’s most recognised and specified inspection certification program and is maintained as the industry standard for practitioners. It is required that students have a valid CIP1 qualification before sitting CIP2.
