Training must be at all levels and a person trained for field work must know how that work fits into the big picture. A person working in the field must be able to visualise electricity and imagine the effect of readings as they are measured.
A person designing and manufacturing instruments and equipment must know how to use them in the field and how the data is analysed by the software so the information received from field operatives is understood.
An engineer must understand the whole of the big picture and how to structure the activities required to control corrosion.
