In order to ensure smooth and uninterrupted operation, it is imperative for the field operators, pipeline engineers, and designers to be corrosion conscious as the lines and their component fittings would undergo material degradations due to corrosion. Practitioners in this line of field must have a thorough understanding of how corrosion works and learn ways to prevent it.
This course covers a thorough review of corrosion, the causes of corrosion and the methods by which corrosion is identified, monitored, and controlled. A basic understanding of science and chemistry is recommended to gain the most value from this course. Active participation is encouraged through case studies and open discussion format.
