NACE CIP Level 3, Protective Coatings Specialist, and Corrosion Specialist Certified, and NACE CIP Level 3 Peer Reviewer, Technical Director at Wood PLC
"I've worked in the corrosion industry for 35 years. My employer requires assurance that I have been trained, tested and regularly reviewed, ensuring I maintain my skills and expertise. Certification is the only recognized process that the training, skills, and experience are continuously reviewed against agreed industry standards.
I successfully completed my CIP Peer Review certification in 1989. NACE certification opened numerous opportunities for me. I travelled the world, working on some very prestigious projects. It was clear that the NACE CIP certification was global, and if you wanted to travel, you had to have the qualification.
I have been a CIP Peer Reviewer for about 8 years. It is great meeting and working with other CIP Peer Reviewers who have a vast amount of experience. You never stop learning in the coatings industry. I meet students from all over the world, and I am in a privileged position to be part of the panel."
