Corrosion and Corrosion Control

Corrosion and Corrosion Control


About the Course

This course provides great opportunity for corrosion practitioners, designers, technical managers, inspection and maintenance engineers. Other professional that will benefit from this course are quality control personnel and those involved in failure analysis to update their appreciation of corrosion and the awareness of the emerging technologies for corrosion control, prevention, testing and monitoring.


Course Objectives

  • to understand why and how corrosion occurs and
  • to know how to control and prevent corrosion.
