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.
