PITTSBURGH—The fundamental inspection skills necessary to visually assess the coating condition of an in-service bridge will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar from JPCL and SSPC.

Longtime coatings consultant Kirk Shields will discuss a range of factors that can affect a coating's condition in "Bridge Coating Condition Assessment," to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET May 20.

The webinar will also present a reporting and rating system that coincides with the AASHTOWare BrM system, enabling the owner to make an educated decision on how to repair damaged and deteriorated coatings.
