This online course involves reading and studying a technical article that appeared in the April 2008 issue of Modern Steel Construction Magazine. We all work hard to make the structures we design perform well for our customers. But in addition to meeting safety and serviceability requirements, appearance can also be an important measure of success. In order for primers and paints to work as intended, structural steel must go through a surface preparation process. Specifying the correct level of surface preparation is key to achieving the finished look you want. Upon completion of study, the attendee is given a 10-question examination testing his or her knowledge on the technical content of the article(s). Attendees are required to correctly answer at least seven questions to receive credit for the course and will then be able to download and print a CEU/PDH certificate for one contact hour.
