Painting and coating of surfaces in buildings and other infrastructure construction require careful attention to specification, application and inspection if construction materials are to be effectively protected for a substantial service life. This course will introduce you to the principles and practices of coatings and paints for applications in buildings and other infrastructure. You will learn about the criteria to use in specifying coatings and paints for all of the typical construction materials, specifications for repair of surfaces, recommendations for removal of existing coatings and paints, standards for condition and cleanliness of substrates, and methods of surface preparation. This course will provide you with important information you can use every day on current and future projects in your office or agency.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
