In a first for Australia and New Zealand, the Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA) successfully completed AMPP’s Abrasive Blaster Certification (C7) and Spray Application Certification (C12). With support from BlastOne, the courses were held in the Northern Territory and completed during May 2024.

Under the expert guidance of Andrew Russell and Gurunathan Kuppusamy—who was also celebrating his 70th birthday—and led by Joshua Webb, students gained valuable insights into blast cleaning of steel and nonferrous surfaces. 

The training covered the principles of surface preparation, surface cleanliness, surface profile, dust and debris control, and abrasives. 

The C12 certification assesses the skills of sprayers who have a minimum of 800 hours applying protective coatings with airless or conventional spray in an industrial or marine environment.

Paints and coatings manufacturer Jotun is helping to supply paint for the courses, according to the ACA. More information on these training programs is available here.
