ADVANCED

This course covers a combination of theory and practical information presented on an engineering or advanced technician level, to help round out the education of experienced personnel with over 4 years of corrosion experience. The course is designed to help students understand, analyze, and develop corrosion control design, installation, and problem-solving techniques.

The Advanced Course is taught by an instructor teaching from a professionally prepared lesson plan.

Prerequisite: For persons with over 4 years of corrosion experience and/or completion of the Intermediate Course.

Advanced Sub-Chairman: John Otto
