Why Should Southern California Industrial Painters be Certified?

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

We have previously reviewed why your painting contractor should be licensed, but it’s also essential that your painting contractor is certified. Your painting and coating projects deserve to have a certain level of quality. Listed below are a few common certification programs painting contractors can acquire.

  • The Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) has developed a series of certification programs to help businesses make safe decisions when hiring painters. The safety certifications are in three main classes: QP1, QP2 and QP3. These classes cover several procedures, such as industrial coatings, hazardous paint removal and surface preparation. The SSPC offers additional certifications for specialized contractors, from thermal spray preparation to polymer coating and cement surfaces management.
  • The NACE Coating Inspector Program is the world’s most recognized coating inspector certification program. This program is designed to improve the overall quality of inspections and includes an extensive training curriculum. Professionals learn about the basics of corrosion control, paint inspection and project management, all while saving significant amounts of money by avoiding common mistakes.
  • The International Organization for Standardization develops and publishes international standards. An ISO standard is created by a panel of experts within a committee. If a company complies with these standards, they typically benefit from minimization of risks, reduced inspection and testing costs as well as increased productivity.
