The Society for Protective Coatings was founded in 1950 as the Steel Structures Painting Council, a non-profit professional society concerned with the use of coatings to protect industrial steel structures.

In 1997, the name of the association was changed to The Society for Protective Coatings to better reflect the changing nature of coatings technology and the ever-expanding types of construction materials.

SSPC is the only non-profit association that is focused on the protection and preservation of concrete, steel and other industrial and marine structures and surfaces through the use of high-performance protective, marine and industrial coatings. SSPC is the leading source of information on surface preparation, coating selection, coating application, environmental regulations, and health and safety issues that affect the protective coatings industry.

This webinar will provide a general overview of SSPC’s QP standards that are used in the Painting Contractor Certification Program (PCCP), as well as describe the scope and content of QP 1, QP 3, QP 6, and QP 8. The webinar will then explain requirements for training, hold point observations, and QC documentation.

SSPC is an accredited training provider for the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE). PE’s in Florida can now submit SSPC Webinar Exam CEU’s to the FBPE. If interested in submitting Webinar Exam CEU’s to the FBPE you must download the FBPE CEU form and successfully pass the Webinar Exam.

Participation in the webinar is free, but for those who wish to receive continuing education credits from SSPC, a test is available after the webinar. Cost of the test service is $25. You can register through the SSPC MarketPlace.

This webinar is part of the 2011 SSPC-JPCL Education Series, providing continuing education for SSPC recertifications as well as technology updates on important topics.
