Tom Elsbernd and Keith Gerebics were awarded STAR4D Instructors of the Year this past Monday in recognition of their outstanding efforts and continued support for the STAR4Defense Training program at Fort Rucker.
The Iowa Waste Reduction Center’s Spray Technique Analysis and Research for Defense (STAR4D) program has gone through many transitions since its start in 2003. The program originally began as a means to provide effective painter training to the U.S. Armed Forces. Now in its 15th year, the STAR4D program continues to provide hands-on painter training to military personnel both on-location as well as our 16,000 ft² facility in the Cedar Falls Industrial Park. Recently, STAR4D has also added the actual painting of military assets to its portfolio helping the U.S. DoD and its contractors address the corrosion of military assets.
Last month, the Grafx Club at the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) had a chance to tour a facility of one of their clients - the Iowa Waste Reduction Center’s (IWRC) spray painter training and research facility located in the Cedar Falls Industrial Park.
