Corrosion and its prevention are issues which impact on every industry.  Understanding how materials will react in their service environment is a crucial aspect of materials selection and appreciating how potential corrosion problems can be mitigated is an important part of the design process.  The knowledge gained from the course will enhance discussions between customers and suppliers and will assist engineers and designers when specifying materials.

Who should attend the course?

This course is suitable for anyone working in engineering, production and design and who manufacture or supply engineering components. This includes buyers and salespersons. It will also be a useful introduction to the subject for new starters and graduate engineers.

How is the course structured?

The full course will be run as three two-hour webinars held from 1000 to 1200 on 11, 12 and 13 October.  It will cover:

1.  Basic corrosion:

  • Corrosion in aqueous environments
  • General, pitting and crevice corrosion
  • Galvanic corrosion
  • Environmentally assisted cracking

2.  Corrosion resistant alloys

  • The selection and use of corrosion resistant alloys
  • Stainless steels
  • Non-ferrous alloys such as nickel, aluminium and titanium

3.  Non-ferrous materials

  • Designing out corrosion
  • Use of barrier coatings
  • Sacrificial and noble coatings
  • Cathodic protection


How much does the course cost?

The cost of the full course is £300.  IOM3 members and subscribers to Module 2 of our Business Partner Programme are entitled to a discount of 10% on the course fee.  These fees are exclusive of VAT at 20% where applicable.
