IMPACT PLUS – Strategy for Corrosion Management - Virtual

IMPACT PLUS – Strategy for Corrosion Management gives you a foundation to guide your company on the path to stronger corrosion management practices. This course serves as an introduction to the basics of implementing a Corrosion Management Strategy (CMS) into an organization to manage assets and prevent corrosion-related failures. Learn about the NACE Institute’s IMPACT PLUS program that provides a standardized CMS framework designed to be easily tailored to any industry sector. Incorporating a CMS gives organizations the tools to create consistent processes and operating procedures so employees from the top down can respond holistically and effectively when faced with corrosion-related incidents.

This course outlines how equipping employees across the organization with a process for fighting corrosion can prolong the lifecycle of critical assets by creating a consistent process and operating procedure. Students will be introduced to corrosion management, the cost of corrosion, corrosion failures, and how using IMPACT PLUS can empower organizations and their employees to consider the effects of corrosion within their business unit.
