Should I take Fundamentals or Basic?

Answer: The Basic Course is a slightly higher level course than the Fundamentals Course. It is geared toward full time corrosion personnel. It is anticipated that after taking the Basic Course the student will progress through the Intermediate and Advanced Courses.

The Fundamentals Course is intended for students who are not full time corrosion personnel such as:

  • Pipeline and utility company personnel who occasionally take pipe-to-soil voltages or read rectifiers as part of their job.
  • Pipeline and utility company personnel who want a basic understanding of corrosion and corrosion control.
  • Managers whose responsibilities include corrosion control.
  • Sales People who sell corrosion control materials or services.
  • Full time corrosion personnel who may not feel comfortable starting off with the Basic course.
