Corrosion in the Amusement Park Industry

Corrosion is an issue for the amusement industry, but an accessible and custom-tailored program to help meet the stringent safety standards required for corrosion control did not exist. NACE International is pleased to offer a brand-new program that addresses the need for amusement park asset protection, visitor safety, and aesthetics. This program is virtual by design for those that would have trouble taking time away from the office. It is structured to provide necessary park employees with the basic knowledge needed to combat corrosion and to provide a foundation for achieving more advanced corrosion knowledge and certification.

The program includes a virtually delivered 90-minute education course and a remotely proctored exam with the issuing of the micro-credential upon passing. The initial course fee includes the exam.
