“Fell” into Corrosion via a research masters after completing a Metallurgical Engineering Degree and similarly fell into a cathodic protection job and have worked on gaining as much experience as possible.  Cathodic protection is not easily taught from a book, it almost entirely comes from practical hands-on experiences.

Corrosion to me is a job. The complexity of corrosion means that often the solution is complex, but sometimes the solution is simple.  Pipeline cathodic protection has provided me with a vocation that I enjoy, particularly being able to get out in the field. Cathodic protection requires the application of cause-and-effect logic and lots of hands-on experience.
