Diploma in Coatings for Corrosion Control

Course overview

This distance learning course for Coating Specialists has been created by industry experts to offer a level of Coating and Corrosion Control training beyond that available through any other recognised coating inspection programme.

The idea behind the creation of this online course is to fill the obvious knowledge gap between senior inspectors and MSc graduates in Corrosion Engineering. Typically, students are from an inspection, management, engineering or scientific background.

We understand the challenges our students face day to day with their working commitments, which is why we provide a 100% flexible study programme. This course has become popular globally due to its flexible nature. Students can pick the assignment subjects they will enjoy and most relevant to their line of work.
