Microbiologically influenced corrosion
(MIC), also known as microbial corrosion or biological corrosion, is the
deterioration of metals as a result of the metabolic activity of
microorganisms. Many industries are known to be affected by MIC. This
5-day corrosion course aims to provide the participant with a thorough
understanding of the causes of microbiologically influenced corrosion,
its recognition, treatment, mitigation, testing and monitoring, and
prevention. Upon completion of this corrosion short course the
participants will be able to identify the different forms of corrosion
damage caused by different types of bacteria, apply appropriate
strategies and methods to treat and mitigate systems affected by MIC. A
guideline for the prevention of microbiologically influenced corrosion
is also included in the course material.

|Who Should Attend|
Many industries and systems are known to be affected by MIC. This corrosion short course will benefit corrosion practitioners, designers, architects, technical managers, inspection and maintenance engineers, quality control personnel, facility owners and operators, and those involved in failure analysis.
Successful completion of this corrosion course helps participants prepare for their NACE certification examinations at the Corrosion Technician, Corrosion Technologist and Senior Corrosion Technologist levels.

|In-House Training Corrosion Courses|
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.

All our publicly scheduled corrosion short courses are conducted once a year. However, you do not need to wait for one year if you have missed any of the publicly scheduled corrosion courses as we have this unique corrosion course-on-demand scheme: we will conduct the course just for you on an one-on-one basis at a time and in a location convenient to you. This option costs significantly less than a full-scale in-house training program.

|PowerPoint Slides and Test Banks for Trainers, Instructors, Tutors, University Lecturers and Professors|
If you are involved in teaching corrosion courses, you may wish to purchase a complete set of PowerPoint slides and the computerized test banks (in MicroTest format) with solutions. These presentations are suitable for teaching corrosion courses at different levels (from undergraduate to postgraduate) and durations (from 6 hrs to 40 hrs). These ready-to-use corrosion PowerPoint slides contain high quality color photographs, illustrations, animations and video clips. They can also be easily edited and customized to your own styles. The corrosion test banks contain over 1,000 corrosion questions for your use in tutorials, tests or examinations. These questions are conveniently grouped into 4 categories in the test bank: (1) true or false, (2) multiple choice, (3) calculation, and (4) reasoning and open-ended discussions).
