Enrolment is now open for the first of two courses from TWI that provide comprehensive training in the detection and quantification of corrosion.
Bookings are now being taken for ‘Corrosion Detection and Monitoring – Conventional Ultrasonic Inspection (UT)’, a five-day course covering the issues associated with corrosion, from the mechanisms of corrosion and material degradation, to identification, quantification and effective inspection and monitoring.
A second course, ‘Corrosion Detection and Monitoring – Advanced Ultrasonic Inspection’, will be added early in 2016. This programme expands on the content of the previous course and introduces phased array ultrasonic testing, corrosion mapping and analysis, to provide an even more thorough understanding of corrosion inspection, quantification and monitoring.
Modern non-destructive testing methods, particularly ultrasonic testing, are capable of detecting and quantifying corrosion with a high degree of accuracy. This is essential for many sectors of industry, but none more so than oil and gas, where processing plant and offshore facility operators need to be able to make informed decisions when considering maintenance schedules, condition monitoring, and engineering critical assessments determining life extension and reduction decisions.
Both courses are fully accredited by BS EN ISO 9712, leading to internationally recognised CSWIP certification, which is respected by industry and in demand around the globe. The courses are suitable for Level 2 ultrasonic inspectors and those who wish to build on existing knowledge of plant inspection.
‘Corrosion Detection and Monitoring – Conventional Ultrasonic Inspection (UT)’ courses are scheduled to take place throughout 2016, at TWI’s premises in Great Abington, Middlesbrough and Aberdeen.
‘Corrosion Detection and Monitoring – Advanced Ultrasonic Inspection’ course dates will be published early in 2016.
