This webinar covers the fundamental inspection skills required to conduct a visual coating condition assessment of an in-service steel bridge. The presentation will cover a range of factors that can affect the coating's condition. It 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 coating. Participants will be eligible to receive credit from SSPC.
