Spray Gun Adjustments

This hybrid course teaches the student four components of proper spray gun set up: atomization, air, paint and settings. A hybrid course is a combination of Internet based and hands-on learning. The student works through a series of online screens (containing videos, photos and drawings as well as text) and then performs a series of hands-on exercises. During the exercises the student will complete a work sheet and spray gun test patterns. The student will fax the work sheet and the spray gun test patterns to the instructor for evaluation. Total time spent on the course by the student will be approximately four hours. After completing the hands-on work the student takes an online quiz. Successful completion of the quiz, work sheet and test patterns earns the student a certificate. This course is geared toward body shop employees, but anyone with an interest in spraying paint can take the course. Class will be on Tuesdays, beginning Nov. 30 for three weeks via the Internet.
