Why attend this course?

These ICorr courses and examination are in compliance with ISO 15257:2017 and are suitable for candidates with or without experience in cathodic protection, but note that full certification to this level requires a minimum duration of one year’s experience, an examination pass and a subsequent application and assessment by the ICorr Professional Assessment Committee.
