INDUSTRIAL COATINGS APPLICATORS TRAINING SCHEME

Why was ICATS developed?

Over the past 20 years, advances in industrial paint and the associated preparation standards make the application of systems today a skilled operation. Using unskilled, unqualified operatives drastically increases the risk of a costly coating failure. The industry has never had a structured training scheme for industrial coating operatives to eliminate this risk. Having identified the skills shortage, the Institute of Corrosion, under its commercial arm Correx Ltd, and in conjunction with major structure owners and industry experts, set up a task group to solve the problem. The key focus of the scheme is on safe working practices, surface preparation and application techniques working to recognised industry standards.

Today ICATS is delivering the skills required to industry through the ICATS Basic Module and its member companies. The scheme is mandated by Sellafield. The Highways Agency, Network Rail, MOD and many of the oil companies and is the minimum requirement for any operative to carry out industrial coating application at any of their sites.

There is now no reason why you should risk using unqualified operatives to prepare and paint valuable structures using today’s high performance systems.
