This course is very flexible. Ideal for studying while working… I am grateful for the experience and feel all possible help was given to help me achieve this qualification… Thanks to all involved.’
In my role of project manager I found the Corrodere course a flexible and enjoyable method of education in corrosion control and understanding protective coatings
I enjoyed all aspect of the course
It’s too easy to become sheltered with the “safe” North Sea coating paint spec so it was good to learn about FBE’s etc. The IMO section was good as it made you appreciate the necessity for good QA / QC if you are to get submerged tanks to last 15 years’
I would particularly like to thank all the people involved in the delivery of the Corrodere Coating Inspector Courses on behalf of the Institute of Corrosion. This last year has been the most successful so far.’
I found the course very informative and easy to understand. I will definitely have my Inspectors and Supervisors sit the exams
It is a very worthwhile course for all Supervisors’ in the industry.’
I hoped to achieve a greater understanding of coating inspection techniques and this course provide me with that and more
A very good course, delivered by an excellent teacher and really well put together
I would recommend this course as I found all the contents very helpful to my present job. This should also help my progress in the inspection industry
I would like to add that I found the practical workshop a tremendous help in my gaining the qualification. I would highly recommend it to anyone taking the online course as it pulls all the subjects together.
