Course - Internal Corrosion for Pipelines - Advanced

This course focuses on the monitoring techniques and mitigation strategies required to assess internal corrosion and develop and manage internal corrosion control programs. Data interpretation, analysis, and integration, as well as criteria for determining corrective action for high-level internal corrosion problems within a pipeline system, will be covered in detail.

Classroom instruction consists of lecture, group exercises, and cases studies.
