Understanding and Interpreting the Structural Repair Manual

Understanding and Interpreting the Structural Repair Manual

This online training course will give the participants the basic skills and confidence in how to use the Structural Repair Manual (SRM) to perform damage assessment, select repair procedures, understand the repair method within the limits of the Structural Repair Manual (SRM). The course includes repair case studies that require the student to determine part identification, allowable damage limits, and detail metallic and composites repair options.

Learning Goals:
