A long-standing member of AMPP (formerly NACE), Don has been providing training to the industry for 35+ years and has taught thousands of CP professionals.

Classes include discussions on Cathodic Protection fundamentals, general safety practices, design considerations, rectifier types, applications and selection, basic rectifier theory, installation, and maintenance considerations, troubleshooting, and repair, etc. In addition to the theory portion of the class, students can also expect to receive direct hands-on troubleshooting training on rectifier units.
