AMPP formally NACE stands for the National Association of Corrosion Engineers.
The National Association of Corrosion Engineers was established in 1943 by eleven corrosion engineers in the pipeline industry. These founding members were involved in a regional cathodic protection group formed in the 1930s, when study of cathodic protection was introduced. With more than 60 years of experience in developing corrosion prevention and control standards, NACE International has become the largest organization in the world committed to the study of corrosion.
Education, Courses, Training, and Certification
AMPP offers education programs for both members and non-members in the US, Canada, and a variety of international locations. From 1 day to intensive week-long courses all our classes are developed and taught by corrosion professionals with years of practical experience in the field.
