The Blastline Institute of Surface Preparation and Painting (BISP), was originally established in 2006 to

mould professionals in industrial grade anti-corrosion applications.  However, its gamut of training programs

was later expanded to include International Grading programs in Welding and Coating Inspection as well

as Certification programs I Non-Destructive Testing (NDT).
We have corporate partnerships or grading compatibility with renowned international organizations such as:
1.    SSPC (Society for Protective Coatings, USA)
2.    NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers, USA)
3.    ASNT (American Society for Non-Destructive Testing, USA)
4.    TWI (The Welding Institute, UK)
Training programs conducted by BISP are executed by highly experienced Engineers and Instructors with

the help of latest machineries and tools in addition to a state-of-the art simulation facility which is getting

The training and certification is so complete and up-to-date that those who pass out from BISP and enter

the industry shall not be found wanting in their skills, capabilities or qualification.


It is estimated that approximately 20 million tons of industrial paint is produced annually world-wide.  

Such large amount of paint requires a proportionately large number of personnel for its application,

supervision and quality control.Structural work and fabrication is another multi-billion industry in which

there is a huge demand for personnel with Quality Control certifications related to welding.
“Non-Destructive Testing” is another field which offers a great career opportunity in a wide group of

analysis techniques used in science and industry to evaluate properties of a material, component or

system without causing damage to the object getting tested.  Because NDT does not permanently

alter the article being inspected, is a highly valuable technique that can save both money and time

in product evaluation, troubleshooting and research.
There is a tremendous shortage of qualified persons in the above mentioned areas.  To fill the huge

gap between demand and supply of such personnel, BISP offers internationally recognized certificate

courses right at your doorstep-in Cochin.  And the demand is ever-increasing for qualified Blasters,

Painters, Painting Supervisors, Painting Inspectors, Welders, Welding Inspectors and Non-Destructive

Test (NDT) Personnel – especially in Middle East, Europe, Far East and within the country.
