Corrosion is a disease to materials just like a disease to human beings. Some types or forms of corrosion can be prevented through good practices in materials selection and design, while others can be cured or controlled if diagnosed early. Corrosion diagnosis involves a number of destructive and non-destructive inspection and examination techniques such as visual and NDT inspection, chemical, electrochemical, metallurgical, mechanical and microstructural tests and analyses. Unexpected corrosion failures can be avoided through corrosion testing, corrosion monitoring, and life prediction based on extreme value statistics.

WebCorr provides corrosion diagnosis and corrosion failure analysis, corrosion and metallurgy expert witness, corrosion training courses and corrosion consulting services across the globe.

 In-House Training Corrosion Course


If you are concerned with corrosion in your business, in-house training is a great solution to train a group of employees from design, production, operation, quality assurance, inspection and maintenance, and technical sales and support on corrosion control and corrosion prevention technology. The contents of all corrosion courses can be customized to fit your organization's needs.


There is no minimum or maximum number of participants required for in-house training corrosion courses. We conduct the in-house training corrosion course at your company's premises and at a time convenient to your company. Requests for in-house training corrosion courses from overseas countries are also welcome.
