"After completing the NACE CP course, I have a better understanding of cathodic protection systems on offshore platforms. I've used this information to assist me in deciding on inspection frequency during a mini-project as the CP focal point. The NACE CIP course helps me as the coating focal point at Sarawak Asset in determining and specifying required surface preparation and paint application."

NACE Cathodic Protection Tester Certified, Non Destructive Testing Inspector and CP Engineer at TTAsia Company Ltd.​

"When I graduated from university, I joined a company working on NDT fields. After two years, my company got several jobs relating to the corrosion industry, and our clients required CP certification, so my company sent me to a CP1 course. That's the reason why I know NACE and I began to get into the corrosion industry.

Now I have 2 years of experience in cathodic protection. My job is very interesting and I love to work on CP projects. I will definitely attend the next CP courses, from CP2 to CP4. These are my goals."
