NACE CIP Level 1 Certified, Quality Assurance Manager at LTL Galvanizers (Pvt) Ltd.

"We do hot dip galvanizing and metallizing. Until I took the NACE course, I was not in good standard on correct test methods, equipment, defect analysis, and correct inspection methods. After NACE training, I am totally aware of using equipment [for paint coating measurement over metallized articles] during coating application. Now I can identify coating defects correctly."
