Cathodic Protection of Reinforced Concrete

Course details

Title: Cathodic Protection of Reinforced Concrete Distance Learning Course - FLEXIBLE START DATES

Corrosion of steel in concrete is a major threat to infrastructure the world over. Cathodic protection is recognised as an economical method of repairing concrete subject to the commonest cause of corrosion. In order to address the levels of technical competence required to carry out a successful installation a British and European Standard has been produced (BS EN 15257) that outlines the levels of training and education required for personnel. There are 3 levels of personnel described in the standard. On a simple basis, Level 3 personnel produce designs and specifications for cathodic protection systems and interpret results, Level 2 personnel produce method statements that Level 1 personnel follow. The standard also outlines the four sectors that cathodic protection is employed, i.e. reinforced concrete, buried and submerged structures, immersed structures and tank internals.

In response to this the Institute of Corrosion and the Corrosion Prevention Association have combined to produce a syllabus, course notes and examination that achieve the requirements of the European Standard. This course relates to Level 1 certification for cathodic protection personnel in reinforced concrete.

All 5 modules must be completed within 18 months of the start date.
