As the aeronautics leader in surface treatment, MECAPROTEC Industries trains its personnel as Surface Treatment Operators on Aircraft Parts (OTSPA) and Aircraft Painters through a Joint Qualification Certificate in Metalworking (CQPM) or reference standards included in list 2 of the Joint Technical Group (GTP). This skills training provides its operators with independence and recognition of their capabilities.


Two types of qualifications are offered at the CQPM level



The CQPMs certify the acquisition of professional abilities necessary for performing an activity. They are classified into levels recognised in the collective labour agreement for the metalworking sector, and are qualifications equivalent to French level 4 (Secondary education vocational diploma).
