Course - Internal Corrosion for Pipelines - Basic


This course was designed to provide students with the fundamentals of implementing, monitoring, and maintaining an internal corrosion control program as part of an overall Pipeline Integrity Management program. It is an introductory level course focusing on internal corrosion of liquid and natural gas pipelines used for transmissions, storage, and gathering systems. The course combines lecture, hands-on field testing and case studies. The course concludes with both a written and practical examination. The practical examination includes OQ Covered Task Assessments for the following tasks: (1) Insert and remove internal corrosion coupons, (2) Measurement of corroded area and pit depth measurement (with pit gauge), (3) Measure wall thickness using handheld ultrasonic meter.

Course - Pipeline Corrosion Assessment Field Techniques (P-CAFT)


Pipeline Corrosion Assessment Field Techniques is “field level” focusing on remediation technology and field techniques for carrying out integrity assessments. The goal is to prepare an individual to: –accurately collect data for used for the evaluation and monitoring of a pipeline corrosion control plan. –recognize pipeline anomalies. –make recommendations for resolving technical issues –evaluate a pipeline in-service using ECDA and ICDA methods and techniques. –make decisions “in the ditch” on the need for and type of repairs, etc. It is STRONGLY recommended that students take the CP1 - CP Tester course PLUS the Coatings in Conjunction with CP or CIP 2 course prior to registering for the P-CAFT course.There will be no hands-on activities in the P-CAFT course. Students should also review the corrosion cell before attending.
