The Radiation Curing Program (RCP) is pleased to announce that John J. Stancampiano is the first student to earn an advanced certificate in radiation curing from the State University of New York (SUNY). This graduate-level online program has been developed by SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) in partnership with RadTech International North America – the association for UV/EB technology.

“RCP bridges academic and professional development in the area of radiation curable inks and coatings,” said Charles Spuches, SUNY-ESF associate provost and RCP director. “The program provides a focused and practical education that is designed with special consideration and support for professionals who work full-time or for students matriculated at other institutions.”

To qualify for the advanced certificate in radiation curing, participants must complete all three 500-level RCP courses for credit with a cumulative grade of at least 3.0. The courses include Introduction to Polymer Coatings, Radiation Curing of Polymer Technologies and Radiation Curing Equipment, Instrumentation & Safety.

Stancampiano said that he wanted to invest in his future, and this opportunity “…was the rigorous program that I couldn’t find elsewhere. I now have credentials from SUNY demonstrating a proficiency in radiation curing.”

Gary Cohen, executive director of RadTech added, “This certification gives university students a competitive advantage when they enter the workforce – with radiation curing applications rapidly emerging in a wide range of industries including 3D printing, food packaging, furniture, automotive and electronics. And, since all courses are online, it offers the convenience of taking them anywhere and at any time.”
