"One of the first courses I took was CIP. It helped me immensely in my early career. It gave me the opportunity to look at different coatings and coatings materials and different ways to inspect them. Later on, I also took CP1 and CP4. CP4 was quite a challenge, even for an engineer. But I enjoyed it, it helped me out a lot. Being certified has certainly helped in my recent years as a professional engineer and working with NACE as an instructor."

“NACE courses and certifications have helped me a lot in daily work. I can make more systematic application of various technologies to solve practical problems in the field. I got more opportunities to spread the advanced corrosion protection knowledge and technology. In particular, NACE CP3 certification played a very big role in changing jobs at the end of 2012.
For employers, NACE certification is very important. With the rapid economic development, China is making more and more good changes. Employing an authoritative engineer can not only increase the company’s expertise, but also increase the company’s technological impact within the industry.”
