The Adhesive and Sealant Council’s Training Academy Certificate Program (TAC) was developed in response to ASC’s ‘Long Range Plan’ strategic initiative to create a curriculum for adhesive and sealant professionals to grow and learn throughout their career. A task force consisting of experienced and knowledgeable peers and academic professionals was created to design the TAC program and its core educational modules. The program provides participants with both fundamental and focused adhesive and sealant education. Graduates will obtain a holistic understanding of the technical and business issues within the adhesive and sealant industry and demonstrate proficiency through course exams. Participants that finish the program will be recognized in the industry as an ASC TAC graduate.
