AS7489: Aerospace Coating Fundamentals for ACAS Personnel PD302003

The purpose of this introductory AS7489 certification course is to provide both new and tenured aerospace coatings application specialists (ACAS) with technical training on the topics of safety and engineering compliance.   Topics specific to the successful preparation and coatings application of aircraft substrates will be the central focus.   

Objectives

By attending this course, you will be able to understand or identify:

  • The fundamental safety precautions that all ACAS personnel must consider
  • How to interpret an SDS and other safety-related documents
  • Specific types of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
  • How to comply with ACAS engineering standards
  • How to identify the sources for aerospace defect-causation using "three buckets" theory
  • The importance of surface cleanliness
  • Effective techniques in obtaining clean surfaces during the preparation process
  • Components of an HVLP spray gun and how they work together
  • What the EPA 6H Rule is and how it affects the aerospace industry

Is this On Demand Course for You?

This self-paced online course has been designed for new and tenured aerospace coatings applicator specialist (ACAS) personnel who wish to obtain basic technical credentials in accordance with AS7489.  Process Engineers, Safety Practitioners, and Supervisors in an Aviation Paint Operations environment may also benefit.
