Students involved in the design, installation, and maintenance of CP systems.
NOTE: The CP Specialist Examination is challenging, and the CP 4–Cathodic Protection Specialist Course is designed as a refresher course for persons already meeting the experience and education prerequisites for the exam. There is not a direct progression from CP 3–Cathodic Protection Technologist to Cathodic Protection Specialist. Participating only in the CP 4–Cathodic Protection Specialist Course does not ensure success on the Cathodic Protection Specialist Examination. Substantial experience involving all aspects of cathodic protection, including design and formal education in math/science/engineering is critical to students' success in the course and examination. Attendance at the CP 3–Cathodic Protection Technologist Course is strongly recommended before sitting for the CP 4–Cathodic Protection Specialist Course or Examination Only Option. The examination is open book and students are welcome to bring any reference material they would like to the examination.
Students must have completed college or university-level courses in algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, and must have significant amounts of practical experience in CP Design
