No. IUPAT does not have an agreement with NACE like the one we do with SSPC.
The IUPAT paid for a NACE CIP 1 & 2 in Edmonton in January 2017. But that was for all Canadian district councils – not just DC 17 – and was likely a one-off.
In our agreement with SSPC, when an SSPC course is taught by an ‘internal’ IUPAT certified SSPC instructor, SSPC offers a substantial tuition reduction per head. After all, SSPC isn’t providing the instructor, IUPAT is. SSPC has similar agreements with GPI, KTA Tator, etc. To the point, it is my understanding that NACE doesn’t enter into similar agreements.
