Just a suggestion but if you are unsure of even the basics, are you sure you want to apply a ceramic coating? It is quite different from wax or conventional sealants and if applied incorrectly will either fail prematurely or require removal by machine polishing.

It would have been quite common with 'older' compounds that were prone to Dusting, today's polishes have advanced a long way. If your having trouble with dusting, I'd re look at your working methods. Too much product, worked too long, hitting edges, not cleaning out the pads enough etc. If your cutting pretty hard then you will create some mess, ONR is ideal for giving the car a wipe down in between stages etc, before panel wiping prior to coating. The use of a lambswool duster is also something to think about, or compressed air

If you are using a polish that is compatible/matched with the coating it should not be necessary.
It is worth taking note of fatdazza's comments.
