 Course Outline

Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is a major worldwide problem faced by many industries such as oil and gas, refining, petrochemical, power, onshore and offshore industries. A leak can cause safety and environmental concerns. CUI may account for up to 10% of a plant's maintenance budget. This 5-day comprehensive corrosion course aims to provide the participants with a clear and thorough understanding of the causes of corrosion under insulation and the technical know-how of CUI detection, mitigation and prevention. CUI-Compass, the software tool for the prediction and assessment of CUI and CUF will be demonstrated at this course.  Upon completion of this corrosion short course, the participants will be able to (1) identify different forms of corrosion under insulation; (2) analyze the root causes of corrosion failures, and (3) apply appropriate methods and strategies for detection, mitigation and prevention of corrosion under insulation and fireproofing, (4) use of computer software CUI-Compass to determine the CUI and CUF likelihood ratings and risk rankings.


This corrosion short course is available for in-house training, on-site 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 business, 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 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.
