Aerospace Metallography & Coating Evaluation Class Update



We at IMR hope that this message finds you in good health and good spirits.  We are writing to inform you that we have been forced to cancel our Aerospace Coating and Evaluation training sessions for the remainder of the year.  After monitoring international and national regulations and restrictions, it is clear that the current pandemic is continuing to be met with un-predictable use of travel restrictions by all government and private entities.  A number of registrants for our training sessions have understandably also expressed personal concern over traveling or travel bans in place by their employers in efforts to limit exposure vectors. 

At this point we cannot provide a definite date for when training can resume.  We will continue to monitor the state of things through the end of the year and into the beginning of next year.  We will be sure to send you a message to let you know as soon as we feel that it is safe and prudent to set a schedule.

We regret having to make this decision.  We certainly understand the difficulty the current situation causes for maintaining a trained and certified workforce.  As soon as the opportunity arises to be able to move forward with training options, we will be sure to contact you as soon as possible.

ABOUT THE COURSE: The aerospace industry consists of a number of engine manufacturers, supported by a far greater number of suppliers. Each manufacturer often has their own specifications relating to coating evaluation and disposition. For that reason, IMR Test Labs has developed a training course to meet the training needs of the entire industry. Certificate provided upon successful completion of the course materials.  We’ve expanded the course with updated material, extended hands-on lab time and a strong focus on the latest advanced materials and coatings technology available.
