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.

  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 the 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). The PowerPoint slides can be easily edited and customized to your own styles. The test bank contains over 1,000 questions for your use in tutorials, quizzes, 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 & open-ended discussions).  If you need more information, please contact Corrosion Clinic.
