Why attend this course?
These ICorr courses and examination are in compliance with ISO 15257:2017 and are suitable for candidates without experience in cathodic protection, but candidates are expected to have some site experience in concrete repairs and in they may have been a part of teams installing CP systems in concrete. The courses are also directed to testers or data collectors who collect simple CP performance data For certification to ISO 15257, an examination pass and a subsequent application and assessment by the ICorr Professional Assessment Committee are required.
The following topics are relevant to this application sector:
- The basics of metals & corrosion
- Basic potential measurement techniques of metals in solution
