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 knowledge beyond that available through any recognised coating inspection programme.

The idea behind the creation of this course was 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.

Understanding the demands our students face day to day with their working commitments, a 100% flexible study programme is available. 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.
