New Learning Opportunities Available at Sunday’s AMPP Forums

Some exciting learning opportunities are being offered Sunday at the 2023 AMPP Annual Conference + Expo. Several forums will be available to choose from, including the following.

The “Coatings 101 Workshop” is being presented by Charles Brown, Mike Basse, and Chris Farschon with Grenman-Pedersen, Inc., and it will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. local time in rooms 401 and 402.  

This workshop for those individuals who want to get a basic understanding of a typical protective coatings project, from understanding the need for a project to the unique challenges faced in the industrial coatings industry.

The “Proper Use of Coatings Inspection Instruments Workshop” is being presented by Bill Corbett and Lake Barrett with KTA-Tator, Inc., and it will be held from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. local time in rooms 401 and 402.  

Ideally suited for those interested in learning the basics of instrument use and for those pursuing AMPP Coating Inspector Certification, this basic workshop is modeled after the successful Coatings Inspection Instrument Use Workshop conducted at many SSPC Coatings+ conferences, and at AMPP 2022. The workshop introduces participants to the primary inspection instruments and visual guides used on a typical coatings project. It features a hands-on lab composed of 10 stations where participants work in teams and use the gages and visual guides on sample substrates.

The “Corrosion and Green Energy” forum is presented by Jon H. Brasher of Ovante, LLC and Graig Cilluffo, Cornerstone Corrosion Consulting. It will be held from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. local time in room 708. This workshop will provide a forum for presentation of corrosion problems, solutions, and mitigation strategies on sources of sustainable energy generation, transmission, distribution and storage.
