The NACE Institute is seeking  Senior Internal Corrosion Technologist certified individuals  to serve as content contributors for an Item Writing / Item Review workshop to write and review newly developed items for the SICT exam. This activity is a step in the exam development process and ensures the test questions are of high quality and appropriate for the exam.
