PPG is launching a new, virtual training program: PPG Aerospace Academy Online. The aim is to provide users of the company’s aerospace products with on-demand access to online learning modules and resources.
Nine coatings-related courses are already available and cover a range of topics, including the basics of surface preparation and priming through cutting-edge technology like basecoat/clearcoat systems and PPG AEROCRON electrocoat primer.
PPG plans to expand and include segments on its sealants, adhesives, and packaging for the aerospace industry.
“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.”
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.
“PPG Aerospace Academy ensures that our customers are at the forefront of the latest aerospace technologies,” added Love. “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.”
