This course is suited to facilities and maintenance staff.

 

Learning outcomes

On completion of this course, learners will be able to:

  • Define corrosion and recognize its economic, environmental and safety impact
  • Recognize terms and definitions of basic electrochemistry, as well as define the processes and concepts of electrochemistry, oxidation and reduction reactions, thermodynamics, kinetics, and passivity
  • Identify the characteristics of commonly-encountered corrosive environments such as atmospheric, water and other electrolytes, soil and high temperature environments
  • Distinguish between engineering materials such as metals, non-metals, composites, concrete and ceramics and their relationship to corrosion control
  • Discuss the various forms of corrosion, how to recognize each form, materials subject to each form, environments that promote each form and how to control each form
  • Explain how corrosion can be controlled during the design process through construction, as well as process parameters, drainage, dissimilar metals, crevices, and corrosion allowance
  • Give examples as to how to control corrosion through design, material selection, modification of environment, protective coatings, and cathodic and anodic protection
  • Differentiate between inspection and monitoring and identify the common testing techniques for each

The duration of this course is 24 contact hours.
