Hot dip galvanizers are an in-demand section of the corrosion industry. Though it is feasible to begin work in an HDG plant without a certification, it is recommended to attend a HDG Inspectors course to promote best practice and professional development.

The ACA, in partnership with Galvanizers Australia, regularly holds the HDG Inspector Program. This course is adherent to the Australian, New Zealand, and International Standards. This course is useful for anyone interested in hot dip galvanizing, including Project Managers, Engineers, Maintenance and Quality Assurance and Control Personnel, Contractors and Specification Writers, and Coating Applicators.

The HDG is industry recognised and accredited, and highly recommended to any person or company pursuing work in the field of HDG. Find a HDG Inspector course near you in our Training Course Listings.

All current inspectors are listed on the GAA website ACA Certified Hot Dip Galvanizing Inspectors
