A knowledge of the following is required for understanding the material in this course:
– Algebra and geometry
Electrochemistry: theory including electrochemical and galvanic series;
– Corrosion theory including polarization under different conditions;
– Electricity: basic electrical laws, series and parallel circuits;
– Cathodic protection: fundamentals, criteria, sacrificial and impressed current equipment including troubleshooting;
– Stray current interference, primarily related to underground pipelines.
– Testing: including voltmeters, ammeters, shunts (and calculations), ohmmeters, reference electrodes (and conversions), isolation and soil resistivity.

A comprehensive knowledge of electrochemistry, electricity, electrical laws, series and parallel circuits, meter operation, and CP fundamentals are necessary for understanding the material in this course.

Course Highlights

  • Perform advanced field tests (including current requirement test,
  • shorted casing test, IR drop test, soil resistivity, and interference
  • tests) and evaluate the results
  • Perform tests to verify the presence of stray current interference and recommend method(s) to mitigate the interference
  • Understand AC voltage and its mitigation
  • Maintenance of documentation and records, including data plotting and analysis
  • Conduct and understand the importance of periodic surveys, including
  • IR- Free readings, polarization decay tests and current measurements
  • Test and troubleshoot rectifier component parts
  • Understanding corrosion coupon test stations
  • Understanding code requirements related to CP
