About the Coatings Inspector Program

The newly revised, AMPP Coatings Inspector Program is the result of over 30 years of coating inspection certification excellence from NACE and SSPC. Organizations worldwide recognize and specify its predecessors — NACE Coatings Inspector Certification Program (CIP) and SSPC Protective Coatings Inspector (PCI) programs. The curriculum is still extensive under AMPP and continues to provide a solid coatings foundation that strengthens the industry's inspectors and their practices by combining classroom study, discussion, and hands-on practice.
