PPG announced September 1st that it has launched PPG Aerospace Academy Online, which is a virtual training program that provides users of the company’s aerospace products with on-demand access to online learning modules and resources.
Nine coatings-related courses are available immediately and cover a range of topics, from the basics of surface preparation and priming through cutting-edge technology like basecoat/clearcoat systems and PPG AEROCRON™ electrocoat primer. PPG plans to expand the offering to include segments on its sealants, adhesives and packaging for the aerospace industry.
The new, virtual training resources are an extension of PPG’s continued in-person PPG Aerospace Academy, enabling greater flexibility and access to the company’s longstanding industry knowledge base and technical expertise.
"Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve adapted our training modules to provide future-forward means of interacting with and supporting our customers," said Jonathan Love, PPG Aerocron commercial support team leader. "Participants are not restricted by their physical location or ability to travel. First-hand access to industry-leading resources is now only a few clicks away."
He added, "PPG Aerospace Academy ensures that our customers are at the forefront of the latest aerospace technologies. Whether it be through traditional classroom and hands-on experiences or our new online training, the academy aims to keep participants ahead of the curve."
