RBI Hawker see training and continuous professional development a priority for staying leaders in their field. High precision repairs require a high precision finish coating. RBI Hawker contacted Spraytrain.com and sought a bespoke airspray training course. The course provided by Spraytrain.com was part theory and part practical with the inclusion of course reference manuals. Controlling coating film thickness, reducing overspray and ensuring an even coating film thickness were just some of the subjects included in the training.
