Aircraft Coating and Corrosion Control Technology

Aircraft repairing, refurbishing and painting

With the Aircraft Coating and Corrosion Control Technology Workforce Certificate (W.C.) program, you could have an important career repairing, refurbishing and painting aircraft in as little as 16 weeks. The expert instructors at FSCJ will take you from classroom to hands-on training in aircraft coating, aviation repair, the removal of exterior finishes, damage inspection and how to apply to one of several aircraft coating systems at a fraction of the cost of the for-profit schools.

Our state-of-the-art Aircraft Services Educational Facility Building at Cecil Center on Jacksonville’s westside is a unique facility that includes offices, a classroom, practice laboratory, paint booth, a student service area and three bays – one large enough to support a Boeing 767. Built in partnership with the Jacksonville Aviation Authority, this nearly 100,000 square foot, climate-controlled building provides facilities for full-scale aircraft coating services and offers students the opportunity to learn in a real working environment. In addition, the comprehensive training in Environmental Protection Agency guidelines and different coating application processes gives students the competitive edge with employers.
