Course - Pipeline Corrosion Integrity Management


The Pipeline Corrosion Integrity Management (PCIM) course serves as the key engineering training track for the PCIM Engineer, who is expected to focus on the implementation and management of an integrity program for a pipeline system. The course provides comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the various aspects of time-dependent deterioration threats to liquid and gas pipeline systems. Students should become familiar with standards discussed in the class which include: The Code of Federal Regulations, ASME B31.8S and API 1160.

NACE is recognized as an Authorized Provider of Continuing Education Units by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). In order for a learner to “Successfully Complete” a NACE course and thereby receive a Certificate of Completion and CEUs, the following criteria must be met:
