Training and Education

To promote better understanding of cathodic protection and materials performance in different types of environments, UCPI offers many different training and educational seminars.  Seminars can be arranged to be held onsite or at our location for a nominal fee which includes certifications.  Currently, we are organizing two seminars one on  Corrosion Engineering and one on Cathodic Protection/Coating for Pipe Line/Tank Corrosion Control.  Those interested in either of these seminars or future seminars should contact Dr. S Mallick at 09332601292.
