 Course Overview

API RP 584 Integrity Operating Windows, IOWsCorrosion is defined in the ASTM G193 standard as “the deterioration of a material, usually a metal, that results from a chemical or electrochemical reaction with its environment”. The 66 damage mechanisms described in API 571 are either due to metallurgical and micro-structural changes occurring at high operating temperatures (high temperature corrosion) or the changes in chemistry such as pH, concentration of corrosives, fluid velocity at low/ambient temperatures (aqueous corrosion). For process safety, a set of critical operating ranges and limits must be established for key process variables. The establishment, implementation, and maintenance of integrity operating windows (IOWs) are essential for maintaining the integrity and reliability of pressure equipment. This 5-day advanced course aims to (1) provide participants with a clear and thorough understanding of why and how operating variables affect the metallurgical, microstructural, mechanical, and corrosion resistant properties of common alloys; (2) to explain the common damage mechanisms encountered in the refining, petrochemical, and process industries; (3) to explain the importance of integrity operating windows (IOW’s) for process safety management, and (4) to guide users in how to establish and implement an IOW program for the refining, petrochemical, and process facilities. A number of the state-of-the-art computer software for corrosion modeling and life prediction will be used as demonstrations on how to establish IOWs of critical process parameters.


This 5-day 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.

 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 at a time and a location convenient to you. This option costs significantly less than a full-scale in-house training program.

 Online and Distance Learning Corrosion Courses

All our corrosion short courses are available for online or offline distance learning. You can start an online course at any time and learn at your own comfortable pace, whenever and wherever you are. You have around-the-clock access to interactive and media-rich course materials, virtual labs, course instructions, course assignments, 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 memory stick for offline learning.

 PowerPoint Slides and Test Banks for Trainers, Instructors, Tutors, University Lecturers and Professors


If you are involved in teaching or training, you may wish to purchase a complete set of the trainer's package for this training course. The trainer's package comes complete with ready-to-use PowerPoint slides (fully editable) and test bank (with answer keys). These ready-to-use PowerPoint slides contain high quality color photographs, illustrations, animations, audio and video clips. The test bank contains questions conveniently grouped into four categories: (1) true or false, (2) multiple choice, (3) calculation, and (4) reasoning and open-ended discussions. The trainer's package is suitable for in-house training and university teaching (30 lecture hours). This is exactly the same package that WebCorr uses to deliver our current training course.

The one-time lump sum fee allows your organization to use the training package and also modify it. For example, your organization may modify the course contents and re-name/re-brand the course under your organization’s name. WebCorr only retains the copyright of the original PowerPoint slides and test banks.
