Course - Coatings in Conjunction with Cathodic Protection

The Coatings in Conjunction with Cathodic Protection (CCCP) course focuses on the control of metallic corrosion by protective coatings and cathodic protection, with coatings as the primary method of control supplemented by cathodic protection. The course will cover the selection, specification, application, testing, and inspection of coatings when used with CP. CCCP provides students with the skills and knowledge to implement and monitor a corrosion control program that utilizes both methods.

Classroom instruction is comprised of lectures and open discussions.
