Corrosion Under Insulation course

Course overview

This Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) course emphasises the importance of proper maintenance and asset integrity management to decrease ongoing expenses. With Corrosion Under Insulation being a primary cause of asset degradation, it can result in significant financial consequences for asset owners.

  • CUI is responsible for 40-60% of all piping maintenance costs
  • Over 80% of piping leaks occur in diameters smaller than 4″
  • CUI is associated with the lengthiest plant maintenance closures.

Our corrosion under insulation course has been developed by industry experts, providing valuable insight into corrosion and its prevention, as well as fireproofing and inspection of assets. The course covers all aspects of CUI, including inspection and management techniques, to significantly decrease asset and pipeline maintenance costs.

Enrol onto our CUI course to learn more about corrosion under insulation and gain valuable knowledge and training in CUI inspection and management.
