Corrosion specialists' professional development training
Training and education is a vital part of the development of anyone working in a profession. Continuing professional development (CPD) is also often a requirement for membership of an industry association or government registration.
As part of its education program, the Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA) each year presents a range of technical seminars and training courses teaching effective and efficient management of corrosion. ACA courses offer the most up-to-date corrosion control information available today and can help meet CPD requirements.
Knowledge and understanding of the latest corrosion technologies and processes is a key factor in managing the massive cost that corrosion imposes on industry. The annual cost has been estimated to be more than 3%, or many billions of dollars, of global GDP each year.
The ACA has once again joined with the Australian Pipelines & Gas Association (APGA) to host a technical seminar to discuss the challenges and solutions for preventing corrosion in pipelines, which are some of our most vital infrastructure. The seminar, Pipeline Corrosion Management, to be held in Melbourne on 29 June, has been designed for all industry sectors involved with pipeline asset management including asset owners, project and integrity engineers, operators, inspection and maintenance personnel, contractors, and suppliers.
Sessions will focus on technologies such as materials selection, coatings and cathodic protection used to attain the desired design life of assets. Speakers will share their experiences by reviewing specific project case studies. Participants will have the opportunity to share their own case studies, work experiences, best practices, engineering guidelines and failure analysis in a technical exchange open forum, aiming to look at new technologies and methodologies to fill the gaps in these industries.
ACA members are entitled to discounts on course fees and both members and non-members can book places on all courses and events online via the ACA's training pages at www.corrosion.com.au.
