After he graduated with a degree in electrical engineering, Sarat was introduced to new aspects of the industry when his new employer sent him for training at NACE International. 

“I’m working in the oil and gas fields in the Middle East, where they need highly professional people who have NACE certification,” says Sarat. With several NACE training courses under his belt, Sarat soon earned his Cathodic Protection (CP) Certification. Now, Sarat is a CP Engineer at an international engineering firm that provides corrosion solutions across Europe, Asia and the Middle East. “The training was a good kick start for my career,” he says. JustinRigby1Justin Rigby working in Australia.
