No formal prerequisites

A strong knowledge of algebra, with thorough understanding of unit conversions and scientific notation is required to comprehend this course.A basic understanding of trigonometry and geometry is also recommended.

The course provides a strong focus on interpretation of CP Data, trouble shooting and migration of problems that arise in galvanic and impressed current systems and design calculations

Course Highlights

  • Define activation, concentration, and resistance polarization
  • Apply the NACE criteria for CP and make necessary adjustments
  • Identify errors in data collection/CP measurements including contact resistance errors, voltage drop errors, and reference electrode errors
  • Determine ideal current distribution for a CP system taking into account the factors affecting current distribution
  • Perform advanced cathodic protection testing using correct measurement techniques to monitor CP system performance
  • Conduct and document interference tests to determine if interference exists, and identify the source of the interference and implement a
  • method of control to mitigate the effects of stray current
  • Design and install simplistic forms of galvanic and impressed
  • current cathodic protection facilities and preform the necessary mathematical calculations
