Corrosion Protection Engineer – Another Career I Want

If given a choice to have another career direction, I want to become a cathodic-protectionCorrosion Protection Engineer. I am always fascinated with corrosion protection particularly cathodic protection.

As an Electrical Engineer I have the advantage of knowing the basic principles of cathodic protection. Despite being a totally different Engineering discipline, it is still related to electrical engineering. Soil resistivity testing, earthing, lightning protection or touch potential mitigation are just some of the common areas for cathodic protection and electrical engineering.

To jump start this career, I am planning to undertake training on cathodic protection and join associations such as NACE or ACA. In this way, I will be able to get certifications to become a corrosion protection techonologist.
