The Chemical Coaters Association International has announced a one day seminar, Conceptos Básicos de Pintura en Polvo en Español, to be held on Tuesday, April 16th at the American Welding Society Headquarters Conference Center in Miami, Fla.

Launched at FABTECH 2012 in Las Vegas, the seminar garnered very high marks from attendees. “We believe there is a need to provide educational training services to Spanish-speaking employees around the country,” said Anne Goyer, CCAI executive director. “The level of interest and great evaluations we received when we held the seminar at FABTECH is an indication that providing educational opportunities in Spanish will help improve finishing processes. Our speakers are experts in powder coating, pretreatment, application equipment, systems and curing. The seminar will cover all of these areas and provide a chance for attendees to get questions answered, solve problems and gain a better understanding of the powder coating process.”

The seminar will begin at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, April 16, and will conclude at approximately 2:30 PM. A continental breakfast, refreshment breaks and lunch will be included. Cost to attend the seminar will be $49 for CCAI members and $69 for non-members. Each attendee will receive a copy of CCAI’s Spanish Powder Coating training manual.
