About the course


   8 modules

   13 Hours


   1-year access


The cost of industrial corrosion is estimated to be more than $2 trillion per year globally (NACE study). There have also been several major failures and industrial incidents within the Refining, Chemical & Power Generation sectors. It is important that key staff working within these industries have a fundamental appreciation of corrosion types: their threats, diagnosis, and mitigation.

This self-paced course will introduce students to the material degradation, corrosion, and cracking mechanisms found within the refining, chemical, and power-generation sectors. The course breaks these mechanism types down into 8 main modules. Each of these modules explains the scientific principles involved and shows real-world examples. Industrial safety incident videos are also presented and the lessons to be learned from each of these are discussed by the instructor.

This introductory course to corrosion contains 8 online modules, which in total are 13 hours of video content. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

After the course, you have unlimited access to the course for 1-year, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge for your projects.

    Access to the course. 
    After your purchase is confirmed it will be activated to your account on the EngineeringTrainer learning portal. Here you will find the course in your dashboard and you will be guided step-by-step through the different course modules. You receive 1-year unlimited access to the course. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge.

    Learn by doing.
    The course is based on video content with video lectures given by the instructor. The videos can be viewed as many times as desired and these video lectures will help you to grasp the important technical concepts.

    This course is self-paced and is not subject to specific dates. The course contains 8 modules with a total of 13 hours of content which can be performed at your own pace. A Personal Certificate will be provided to participants if they finish the course within the first month after purchase. This incentive will motivate you to perform the course quickly thereby improving your learning curve.

    You receive 1-year unlimited access to all content. This allows you to perform modules again whenever if you need to refresh knowledge for your daily work projects.

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

    Example Certificate:


    • Video lectures

    • Links and discussion of industry cases

    The majority of training material are videos. These are not available for download, but can be accessed directly with your account on the portal. Apart from quizzes the exercise files can be downloaded. These can include .pdf files with the exercise questions, excel files or other file types.

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

    We encourage participants to submit feedback and questions. These form the basis for new, future videos that will be added to the online course, but they will not be answered to the student directly.
