Welcome to the first and widely acclaimed Coating Inspector Approval Scheme in the Philippines. The training and certification program is a joint project developed by the Atlantic, Gulf & Pacific Company of Manila Foundation, Inc. and the Singapore Welding Society in collaboration with Waugh Technical Services of the UK entitled "SWS ICAS".

Singapore Welding Society - International Coating Approval Scheme (SWS ICAS ) breaks new ground by the development of sources and provisions of certification not previously available for subject areas within Coating Inspection. This is in addition to the standard levels of Coating Inspector and Site Operatives discipline.

We intend to qualify your Coating Inspectors and Coating Operatives for Industrial and Marine Coatings field according to the National and International Oil, Gas and Civil Engineering companies' standards worldwide.

The aim of the approval is to train and then examine candidates for their competencies in carrying out inspection procedures, interpret and deliver specification requirements, keep records in accordance with client's procedures, and demonstrate a sound theoretical background of the subject at the various levels.

Underpinning objectives are;
To assist in enabling companies to plan their future requirements for inspection and operative staff at various levels through this comprehensive programme offered by AG&P – SWS ACAS.
To standardize the working practices of Certified Inspectors and Operatives to a high technical and practical level, and to provide a seamless route from Operative to Inspector as and when required by a company or individual.
To allow companies to specify the use of AG&P certificate- SWS ICAS certificate holders for their projects with the knowledge that the Coating Inspectors and Operatives have the highest level of knowledge, skill, awareness and adherence to Workplace Safety & Health (WSH) requirements.
