The law mandating the DoD Corrosion Prevention and Control Program (CPCP) includes a long-term strategy requirement to “collect, review, validate, and distribute information on proven methods and products that are relevant to the prevention of corrosion.” The DoD CPCP has responded with an overarching strategy to transcend traditional methods of corrosion prevention and control and to change the prevailing corrosion culture of “wait, find, and fix.” And the pathway to culture change includes outreach to all levels and segments of the affected population through corrosion education, training and information sharing. The CPCP established working integrated product teams – particularly the Communications and Outreach WIPT and the Training and Certification WIPT– to develop and implement that strategy and pathway to culture change. Training programs have been established with the help of SSPC and NACE. Corrosion education has been developed and expanded through creation of a Bachelor of Science degree in corrosion engineering and establishment of a National Center for Education and Research on Corrosion and Material Performance. Numerous high-quality corrosion education and training videos have been produced, along with corrosion video games. And the CorrDefense and CorrConnect websites are established to make corrosion information, education and training available worldwide. Other educational endeavors include the Technical Corrosion Collaboration of universities and laboratories dedicated to groundbreaking corrosion research, corrosion training for the Allies at the NATO School, and science center corrosion exhibits aimed at corrosion education of middle school and high school students. SSPC has played a pivotal role in changing the corrosion culture of a wide range of military and civilian institutions through their training programs, influencing professional performance in the coatings industry, involvement in the development of high-quality coatings products and application systems, and broad support of the Department of Defense Corrosion Prevention and Control Program.
