GTSExam – educational software for spray personnel

With GTSExam, GTS offers a software solution which it specifically developed for the training and examination of GTS Qualified Thermal Sprayers and GTS Thermal Spraying Supervisors. GTSExam currently comprises around 800 multiple-choice questions from the GTS paper GTSPA014. The question catalogue covers the entire range of thermal spray topics from preparatory work prior to spraying, standards and the individual spray processes through to post-treatment. It also addresses such issues as industrial health and safety, and environmental protection. The GTS Quality Committee compiled the question catalogue and also updates and expands it at regular intervals.

The software enables practice exercises and examination questions for sprayers or spraying supervisors to be printed or, on request, puts together a complete catalogue of all the questions with marked answers or a separate solution sheet depending on the user’s wishes. The highlight of the program is, however, the interactive training mode. Directly on screen, the user answers questions which are randomly generated and accompanied by a graphic representation of the results. There are three different examination modes available: simple response right/wrong, answering a question repeatedly until the right answer is selected, or the simulation of an examination situation without any interim results for the individual questions.

Version 2 of GTSExam is now available and comprises the updated question catalogue (status: 2023) from the GTS paper GTSPA014. With respect to personnel inspections for the GTS certificate, the new question catalogue will replace all older versions as of October 2023.

The software is available to GTS members free of charge as part of the GTS papers they receive. Non-members can obtain GTSExam from the GTS Head Office
