FINISHING TRADES INSTITUTE District Council 50/Local Union 1791 in Hawaii has first CAS Exam D istrict Council 50, Painters Local 1791 held its first Coating Application Specialist (CAS) examination the week of February 4th. Ten industrial painters had to complete a written and hands-on examination. To ensure the testing procedure complied with the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) standards, two proctors, Mark Tenbroek of District Council 38 from Vancouver, BC, Canada and Gord Green of Local Union 177 from Calgary, AB, Canada were flown in by the Finishing Trades Institute (FTI). Also supervising the process was the FTI’s Apprenticeship and Training Representative (ATR) Kelly Humann. The CAS certification is a high level qualification so industrial painters can work on projects designated for SSPC QP Certified contractors. The IUPAT is emphasizing industrial painting and has formed a partnership between SSPC and the FTI to produce CAS certified applicators. The CAS examination was a three step process: 1. On Monday, February 4th, a CAS preparation class was held at our training center. Applicants were briefed on the testing process and methods; and blasting, coating and quality control information was reviewed. 2. On Tuesday, February 5th, a comprehensive written examination was conducted by the proctors. 3. Following the written examinations, the course was moved to Honolulu Painting Company, where each applicant showed their skills at blasting and coating a test panel. Thanks go out to IUPAT, FTI, SSPC, Ron Yonagi & the Honolulu Painting Company for opening their shop for the CAS exam and all the hard working participants of this first CAS examination. Congratulations to all participants for passing all three portions of the exam. DC 50 CAS participants, who passed all three portions of the CAS exam. 28 JANUARY-MARCH 2013 • J ournal
