Corrosion Course Overview


corrosion short course: corrosion control and corrosion preventionThis 5-day basic corrosion course covers fundamental aspects of corrosion control and its prevention. The course will enable beginners to establish a solid foundation in corrosion before moving on to  advanced topics. Exercises, hands-on practical sessions and virtual experiments throughout the course will help participants understand the basic concepts and fundamentals important to corrosion. This basic corrosion course also helps participants prepare for their NACE certification examinations at the Corrosion Technician, Corrosion Technologist and Senior Corrosion Technologist levels. It provides an excellent avenue for corrosion practitioners, designers, technical managers, inspection and maintenance engineers, quality control personnel and those involved in failure analysis to update their appreciation of corrosion and the awareness of the emerging technologies for corrosion control and prevention.


This corrosion 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.

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


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.

 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.
