Cathodic Protection

About the Cathodic Protection Program

Cathodic protection systems are used as a critical component of corrosion mitigation across a wide array of industries and assets such as fixed offshore structures, oil and gas pipelines and storage tanks, ships, and more. Our Cathodic Protection Program is the most specified program in the world and provides students with the theoretical and practical fundamentals for testing, evaluating, and designing both galvanic and impressed current cathodic protection systems.

Who is the Cathodic Protection Program for?

This program is designed for:

  • Field Personnel
  • Engineers
  • Project Managers
  • Technical Sales Personnel
CP 1 Training

Cathodic Protection Tester (CP1) Certification

A CP tester is responsible for observing, recording, or measuring the effectiveness of CP systems. The CP1 program provides both theoretical knowledge and practical techniques for testing and evaluating data to determine the effectiveness of both galvanic and impressed current CP systems and to gather design data.

CP 2 Training

Cathodic Protection Technician (CP2) Certification

The CP2 program provides intermediate-level education of corrosion theory and CP concepts, types of CP systems, and advanced field measurement techniques. Successful completion indicates a higher level of understanding, ability to troubleshoot onsite, and the capability to test if a structure meets criteria.

CP 3 Training

Cathodic Protection Technologist (CP3) Certification

The CP3 program has a reviews interpretation of CP data, troubleshooting and migration of problems that arise in both galvanic and impressed current systems, before focusing on design calculations for these systems. Technologists will be able to ensure CP systems meet design criteria as well as evaluating external factors that influence currents.

CP 4 Training

Cathodic Protection Specialist (CP4) Certification

The CP4 course focuses on the principles and procedures for CP design on a variety of structures for both galvanic and impressed current systems. It covers the theoretical concepts and considerations that influence the design and calculations (including attenuation) of a cathodic protection system. This certification is for those responsible for the design, installation, and maintenance of cathodic protection systems.
