Corrosion Self-Study Course

Self-Study | Product code: 21311C

Price: $1400.00 Member Price: $1200.00

Corrosion occurs in all industries from automotive and aerospace to infrastructure, construction, petroleum, power, paper making, food processing, bioengineering, and pharmaceuticals. Corrosion is costly, dangerous, wasteful, and unsightly. It can be predicted, controlled, and even avoided. This class presents an overview of the eight major corrosion processes and related corrosion monitoring, prediction and control mechanisms. The principles discussed are applicable to all metals.

Emphasis is on practical applications of corrosion technology to industrial corrosion problems.

Target Audience

  • Engineers, particularly civil and mechanical engineers
  • Managers
  • Designers, Specifiers, QA Managers
  • Marine engineers
  • Technicians
  • Metallurgists
  • Chemical and petroleum industry specialists


Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify the eight major forms of corrosion and which are of concern for your applications
  • Relate the occurrence and severity of corrosion to the natural driving forces
  • Describe common corrosion test methods for your applications
  • Avoid many of the design traps that speed corrosive decay
  • Recognize applicable corrosion control techniques and their limitations
