Course Objective

Corrosion is a destructive result of the chemical reaction between a metal or alloy and its environment. Due to a reaction, metal as elements are converted into metallic compounds. Thus corrosion is a natural process whereby all metals tend to reverse back to their initial compounds.

The present training program has been developed to provide an overview of the corrosion and its preventions and control measures in important capital intensive industries like Oil & Gas Production, Pipelines, Refining, Petrochemicals, Fertilizers, Process Plants, Power Plants, Manufacturing and others. An emphasis of the program is to provide participants a right platform to discuss actual case studies through live question/answers to further enhance their depth of knowledge and get answers to the problems experienced in the plant.

Course Timings

Training timing from 09.00 am to 18.00 pm both the days with intermediate Tea/ coffee Breaks, Buffet Lunch.
