Course Details

Corrosion Awareness Control and Monitoring

From Date: 23-Jan-2022   
To Date: 27-Jan-2022
5 days
Corrosion & Inspection



To understand the fundamentals of material failure at normal and plant operating condition and why different material behave differently - strategic maintenance methods
To understand how plant aging can cause catastrophic failures and the methodology of inspection

Importance of monitoring and modern methods

Case studies from plant failures and failure analysis to reinforce understanding of theory

To understand corrosion in other structural materials as concrete fiberglass and nonmetals




Candidates who intends taking certification- For those interested in learning fitness for service of plant  and equipment- for  Managers and staff interested in health safety and environment of unintended plant failure-for planning Managers interested in MRO and plant maintenance and know all about inspection and monitoring

This five day intensive Short Course is intended for Engineers, Technicians, Managers, Supervisors, Salespersons, Inspectors, Anyone needing a basic understanding of corrosion.





The need for corrosion awareness

The cost of corrosion


Why metals and materials deteriorate

The impact of environment

The school textbook definition of corrosion

The modern definition of corrosion

The atomic theory

Setting up a corrosion cell in the lab.


Why different materials react in different ways and rates

More definitions of corrosion – spontaneous, unseen, irreversible

The mistaken common notion, anode, cathode

Polarization – the slowing down process

Tafel’s slope – a clue to control corrosion


Understanding corrosion – forms – causes –soil, water ,bacteria, atmosphere, gases and vapours, and steam-operating conditions as pressure, temperature, velocity, stress,  product input variations

Avoidance and control of each – explained through

Case studies.


Four-way method of controlling corrosion

What is cathodic protection – how it works – principles

Typical examples of CP

The galvanic and impressed.

Training Certificate

Define Management Consultancy & Training Certificate of course completion will be issued to all attendees.



A highly interactive combination of lectures and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information and knowledge transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions, and motivate everybody find the right answers. You will also be encouraged to raise your own questions and to share in the development of the right answers using your own analysis and experiences.  Tests of multiple-choice type will be made available on daily basis to examine the effectiveness of delivering the course.

Very useful Course Materials will be given.
