The National Shipbuilding Research Program has identified surface preparation and coating as both a labor intensive and costly construction area. cost saving equipment, techniques and technology are available. Increased productivity can be achieved through improved operational planning and greater understanding of efficient operating principles. Because these positive changes can be carried out by first-line supervisors and operators, the governing committee conceived the Paint and Surface Preparation Training Program. The program was developed to improve the quality of coating work by enhancing the supervisors ability to communicate systematically the fundamentals of marine coating technology to both entry level and experienced painters. Since training is an essential part of supervision, the program furnishes the supervisor with additional information he will need for the increasingly technical and specialized demands of shipyard coating work. The program consists of two parts a Off-yard training seminars for the supervisor. b Training material to be used by the supervisor with his crew. The Paint and Surface Preparation Training Program for Shipyard Personnel was carried out under the National Shipbuilding Research Program by Avondale Shipyards, Inc. and the Institute of Applied Technology, Washington, D.C. Guidance was provided by the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers SNAME 023-1 Panel.
