THE CORROSION SOCIETY

Pipeline Industry Programs As our pipeline infrastructure continues to age, it demands constant monitoring and maintenance. Add to that the changing regulatory requirements, it is now more important than ever that operators are aware of how corrosion and other defects can impact the integrity of the pipeline. Significant cost savings can be realized by implementing available corrosion prevention and mitigation technologies as a component of an existing integrity management plan. The NACE Internal Corrosion and Cathodic Protection Programs offer the pipeline industry the technical knowledge and skills to ensure safe operation of our pipelines without failures that may jeopardize public safety, result in product loss, or cause property and environmental damage. In addition to those programs, NACE will launch three new courses this Fall as part of its Pipeline Corrosion Integrity Management Program (PCIM). Pipeline Corrosion Assessment Field Techniques (P–CAFT), Direct Assessment, and InLine Inspection will join the existing PCIM Management course to complete the program. These courses may be taken as stand-alone training for continued professional development or as part of the path toward the Pipeline Corrosion Integrity Management certification. The PCIM program offers two certification tracks. The PCIM Technician certification focuses on remediation technology and field techniques for carrying out integrity assessments. The PCIM Technologist certification will focus on the implementation and management of an integrity program for a pipeline system.
