SUNY-ESF Expands Radiation Curing Program with New Online Short Course

SYRACUSE, NY – The State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) is expanding its Radiation Curing Program (RCP) with the addition of a new short course in ultraviolet/electron beam (UV/EB) curing beginning in May 2014. The RCP is a series of online courses designed for current employees in radiation-curing-related industries, as well as those preparing to enter the rapidly growing field, who wish to pursue documented graduate-level professional development. The new short course, Principles of Energy Curing Technologies, is targeted at sales and customer service representatives, marketing and business managers, and regulatory agencies in these fields.

The self-paced Principles of Energy Curing Technologies short course typically takes 10-15 total hours to complete, although to accommodate workplace demands, participants will have four weeks to fulfill the course requirements. Taught by several industry experts, the course will provide participants with a broad overview of the science, materials, equipment and processes used in energy curing, the advantages and disadvantages of using different technologies and equipment,  and also skills to recommend a high-level course of action when presented with a problem that may be solved by energy curing technologies.

The RCP, including the new short-course, is supported, in part, by a U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration H-1B Technical Skills Training Grant. The inaugural offering of Principles of Energy Curing Technologies will run from May 19 to June 13. A second summer offering will run from July 7 to August 1.
