The ACA Home Study program covers the same information as provided in the ACA Corrosion Technology course, but has been developed for those who wish to learn about basic corrosion with the convenience and flexibility of a home study program.

Materials and Assessment: The ACA has developed a package to further help students of the Home Study program master basic corrosion principles, practices and problems.

The Package Includes:

  • Over 140 pages of easy-to-read notes
  • Interactive computer theory, experiments and case studies
  • A Corrosion Basics Textbook
  • Questions for assessment issued at regular intervals
  • A folder for notes, questions and additional material

On enrolling, students will be expected to work through the course notes at approximately a chapter a month.

The supplied textbook contains additional information and problems which will assist your comprehension and understanding of the concepts. For those who wish to delve deeper into any of the topics in the course, this book should provide a useful starting point. Students will also receive some notes on how to use the course and how to get the most from it. The first month’s package will be sent with this starting material, experiments and case studies.

Each month (or at whatever interval you require), after satisfactorily completing and returning the assessment questions, the student will receive an additional package of material. This will contain notes on material to study, problems to be solved and the previous month’s problems marked and returned. The student will have 12 months in which to complete the course and on completion, will sit the exam at a convenient time and location to the ACA.

Please Note: On completion of the Home Study Course, an examination for the Corrosion Technology Course is available, enabling students to apply for the ACA’s Certification Scheme.
