Cathodic Protection Training Courses

Himoya Corrosion Technology Pvt. Ltd. An ISO 9001:2015 Certified Company, provide intensive training on corrosion mechanism and its solution techniques at company facilities based onthe requirement of the industry standards. The purpose of the course is to provide a better understanding of cathodic protection (CP) to all those who are involved in monitoring and maintenance of cathodic protection systems for onshore & offshore metallic structures under corrosive environment.

The course also provides, understanding of electrochemistry, corrosion fundamentals, and basic chemistry and electricity, which is desirable in understanding the basic concept and operation of a cathodic protection system. Knowledge gained in this course will provide an overview of the theoretical and practical aspects of cathodic protection, which will help the engineers and technicians in monitoring and operating their CP systems more accurately and effectively. The course provides a foundation for more advanced courses as well. The course also includes multiple practical sessions in the field or with simulation lab where the operation of CP system will be demonstrated practically. We conduct preparatory courses for NACE CP Level 1, 2 &3 cathodic protection certification courses.

The course also includes a practical session in the field or with simulation lab where the operation of CP system will be demonstrated practically.

Courses in Brief

Scope of course shall include lectures with presentation, explanation of 21st century corrosion challenges faced by the oil, gas, utility and power industry, hands-on training and practical with simulation lab in accordance with established codes and specification as well as international standards of NACE, API and BS 7361. The course will be conducted in a class room for 3-5days (depends on client’s requirement)and thecourse will include the following activities;

  • Every day Lectures for each chapter with power point presentation.
  • Corrosion simulation lab for each chapter soon after the presentation.

The Cathodic Protection Training Course is an intensive 3-5 days course that presents CP technology to prepare CP maintenance Crew to maintain the plant integrity. Course topics include basic electricity, electrochemistry and corrosion concepts, CP theory, CP systems and CP field measurement techniques. This course provides theoretical knowledge and practical fundamentals for testing on both galvanic and impressed current CP systems.
