SUNY-ESF Expands Radiation Curing Program


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.

School says the RCP is a series of on-line 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 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 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 US Dept. 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 Aug. 1.
