Corrosion is a dangerous and costly material process which can lead to failure of metallic constructions. An understanding of which constructions, in which operating environment, are susceptible to corrosion is vital in any project involving metals and alloys.

This training course starts by introducing the participants to all of the common corrosion mechanisms including aqueous corrosion, high temperature corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, galvanic corrosion and pitting corrosion. Measuring corrosion rate in the field, due to it's often local nature, includes uncertainties and within this course the instructor will explain how to interpret these results in a pragmatic and safe way.

Stainless steels, nickel alloys and copper alloys are corrosion resistant, and here it will be explained why, with reference to the material micro-structures, why this is the case and under which circumstances each is corrosion resistant. The course concludes by looking at which laboratory tests are available for assessing corrosion resistance and giving participants an overview of the design guidelines for minimising corrosion.

The course consists of 2 days of live classroom sessions. A comprehensive, full colour training handbook is also provided on the course, which serves a reference document following completion of the training.

Prerequisites:

  • No prior knowledge of corrosion is required and there are no specific entry requirements, but candidates should be able to perform calculations from straightforward mathematical formulae and interpret data represented in graphical form

Level: Beginner/Intermediate


Live sessions

This course consists of instructor-led group sessions, these group sessions can be Virtual or Onsite. During these sessions participants can ask questions to the instructor which are discussed, as well as questions submitted beforehand in the learning portal.

After each live session used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants on the learning portal.

Please note that for privacy reasons no recordings of the live sessions are made or provided.

You receive 1-year unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your daily work activities.

The sessions are scheduled together with the customer and are private for their team only. 

Typically the training course would be scheduled as an on-site training of 2 days, though there is total flexibility to customize the training program.

The training course is only available as a live on-site training course

A personal digital certificate will be made available to each participant upon full attendance.

FAQ

This course consists of instructor-led live sessions which consist of presentations, demonstrations and discussions of questions. During each live session participants can ask questions to the instructor (through chat or microphone) which will be answered.

Please note that for privacy reasons no recordings of the live sessions are made or provided.

The training material used in the live sessions, for example the slides or exercises, will be available in the EngineeringTrainer portal for a year after the date of the training allowing you to refresh your knowledge or review material if needed. 

No, course content is not available for download.
