 Course Overview

 

This 5-day training course covers the inspection practices for fired boilers and process heaters (furnaces) used in petroleum refineries and petrochemical plants. This training is focused to improve equipment reliability and plant safety by discussing the operating variables which impact reliability, and to ensure that inspection practices obtain the appropriate data, both on-stream and off-stream, to assess current and future performance of the equipment.

 

This corrosion short course is available for in-house training, online and distance learning worldwide. It can also be customized to meet the specific needs of your organization.

 In-House Training Corrosion Courses/On-Site Training Corrosion Courses

 

If you are concerned with corrosion in your company, in-house training or on-site 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 our corrosion courses can be customized to fit your organization's needs.

 

There is no limit to the number of participants required for in-house training corrosion courses. We conduct the in-house training corrosion course at your company's premises worldwide, and at a time convenient to your company.

 Corrosion Course-On-Demand

 

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) or for a small group from your company at a time and in a location convenient to you. This option costs significantly less than a full-scale in-house or on-site corrosion training program.

 Online Corrosion Courses and Distance Learning Corrosion Courses

 

All our corrosion short courses are available for online or offline distance learning. You can start an online corrosion course at any time and learn at your own comfortable pace and schedule, whenever and wherever you are. You have around-the-clock access to the interactive and media-rich course materials, virtual labs, course instructions and course assessments. Discussions and questions related to the corrosion courses are posted on the website or exchanged through email for a period up to 3 months. Video conferencing or instant messaging can also be arranged for discussions of course topics. For those who do not have ready access to internet, we can send you our online course materials on a CD-ROM, or DVD, or USB flash drive for offline distance learning.
