The Cathodic Protection (CP) System Design for Buried Pipelines course is offered as a 4.5-hour self-paced course that covers these questions as well as corrosion principles and CP concepts as they apply to buried pipelines.
Course topics include factors that influence CP design, pipeline CP design approach, pipeline CP system and materials, and CP design examples.

This course utilizes a combination of theory and practical information and is designed to provide in-depth coverage of the principles and concepts of pipeline CP design. 
The course will provide design calculations and examples.

Course Objective: The objective of this course is for each student to understand the fundamentals of CP design for buried pipelines.

Target Audience: Pipeline, utility, and consulting engineers with a desire to obtain training for oversight of CP design on buried pipelines. 
This class will assist engineers in meeting the requirements for CP design stated in many RFP’s and government regulations that state that the CP engineer must be accredited or certified by NACE International as a NACE Accredited Corrosion Specialist or a NACE certified Cathodic Protection (CP) Specialist or be a professional engineer who has certification or licensing that includes education and experience in corrosion control of buried or submerged metallic piping and tank systems.
