Spot repair on metal and composite surfaces is a training in knowledge and skills for the safe application of products for the protection of steel and glass fibre reinforced laminates. In addition, the training covers the correct application of paint products in marine and terrestrial environments. The training programme includes a number of standards related to surface preparation for application of painting and anti-corrosion coatings, as well as a wide range of knowledge related to the corrosion mechanisms of metals and non-metallic alloys.
