ICATS (Industrial Coating Applicator Training Scheme) is owned by the Institute of Corrosion and is a comprehensive structured training scheme for the registration, training and certification of industrial surface preparation and coating operatives.
ICATS was developed due to demands by the industry to have formal accredited training for applicators of coatings in the UK.
The Scheme is mandated by the Highways Agency in NHSS19A and Network Rail for all applicators.
ICATS is also a requirement for many other major structure owners such as Oil Companies, Power Generators and Infrastructure Owners.
Rob Thomas, Operations Manager says: “Having a trained and qualified workforce will allow us to demonstrate to our current and potential customers our capability to tackle most industrial painting projects in a professional way – giving them all confidence that they have selected the right company for the job.”
