Jerome Edinger of Bass Engineering, Longview, Texas, was one of three instructors for the CP1—Cathodic Protection Tester course at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School recently. Industry personnel entering the cathodic protection industry from Ulysses; Mullinville; Great Bend; Richfield; Lakin; Russell; Omaha, Neb; Aurora, Colo;  Pinedale, Wyo.; Fayetteville, Ark; Birmingham, Ala.;  Oakland, Iowa;  Montgomery, Ala.;  Oak Grove, Lous.; and Pampa, Texas; were certified as NACE cathodic protection testers upon successful completion of the course. Students learned about the basics of electricity, electrical laws, electrochemistry; corrosion and CP theory and components; polarity related to current flow and metal corrosion activity; reference cells; location mapping, report preparation, and recordkeeping; and safety and code requirements. They used test instruments to perform a variety of field tests such as structure-to-soil potentials, voltage and current measurements, soil resistivity, pipe/cable locating and rectifier readings and conducted tests to identify shorts and continuity tests in CP systems.
