The course consists of a combination of academic (lecture) and laboratory (hands-on) phases. This course is recommended for students seeking more advanced studies on the topic and is open to any student. Continuing Education (CE) credit will not be given for this course. Total Hours: 24.0 Course Learning Objectives: Upon satisfactory course completion, students will be able to accomplish the following tasks when dealing with sealants: Discuss and explain purpose of sealing, identify and implement any safety requirements, employ and perform proper surface preparation, identify and select proper form/class of sealant and use and perform the following methods of sealing with no instructor assistance: Fay, prepack, fillet, injection, fastener encapsulation and slot seal. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): All required Personal Protective Equipment will be provided students at beginning of course. Examinations: No testing will be administered, this is a familiarization course and no credit is awarded. Textbooks Required: No Textbooks are used. All required text or written material will be provided to students at time of class delivery. Grading Policy: No grading will be awarded due to the course description as a familiarization course. Course Schedule (Planned): Module 1 (Day 1): Module Duration: 8.0 hours Academic (Lecture) This module consists of: Instructor Introduction, Student Introduction, General Class/Laboratory Set-Up, Course Expectations, Safety Briefing, Sealant Theory, Purpose and Definitions, Corrosion Theory and Mitigation, Surface Preparation and Cleaning, Sealant Tool Purpose and Selection, Sealant Application and Selection. The student begins developing basic understanding through introduction and demonstration of aerospace sealing theories and purpose. All needed Personal Protective Equipment will be provided to the Student. Module 2 (Day 2): Module Duration: 2.0 hours Academic (Lecture / 6.0 hours Laboratory (Hans-On) This module consists of: Lecture on Specific Details of the following Methods of Sealing: Fay, Prepack, Fillet, Injection, Fastener Encapsulation, and Slot Sealing. In the Laboratory, the Instructor(s) will Demonstrate How to Perform the Different Methods of Sealing listed above. The Instructor(s) will provide Tools and Equipment needed to Practice the Hands-On Tasks. The Student builds understanding from information presented in Module 1, learns proper method of sealing from watching instructor demonstrations. The Student will then have sufficient time to practice the different methods under instructor guidance. During practice each student will receive coaching as needed to meet requirements. All needed Materials and Personal Protective Equipment will be provided to the Student. Module 3 (Day 3): Module Duration: 2.0 hours Academic (Lecture) / 6.0 hours Laboratory (Hands-On) This module consists of: Students will be provided with Tools and Equipment needed to perform the following methods of Sealing with limited Instructor assistance: Fay, Prepack, Fillet Injection, Fastener Encapsulation and Slot Sealing. By using all the information provided in Module 1 & 2, the Student will be able to Discuss, Analyze and Identify the proper applications of each Sealant Method and Complete a Project by Performing ALL Sealing Methods presented in the course with limited instructor assistance. All needed Materials and Personal Protective Equipment will be provided to the Student.
