Event description


DESCRIPTION: This class presents an overview of the eight major corrosion processes and related corrosion monitoring, prediction and control mechanisms. The principles discussed are applicable to all metals. Emphasis is on practical applications of corrosion technology to industrial corrosion problems.

WHEN: Course begins January 9, 2018, and ends on April 17, 2018. Spots will be limited to 25 students.

WHERE: Room 8-207, Donadeo Innovation Center for Engineering, University of Alberta



• Engineers and technicians facing corrosion issues and wishing to improve their knowledge in the area (Engineers, particularly civil, mechanical, and upstream, midstream, and downstream oilfield engineers and technicians)
• Those designing, specifying, or ensuring the quality of components facing corrosion threats (Designers, Specifiers, QA Managers)
• Managers overseeing work which corrosion impacts
• Metallurgists seeking to expand their knowledge of material degradation
• Chemical and petroleum industry specialists

The course instructors range from prominent professors and instructors at the University of Alberta with years of experience teaching to prominent industry experts with years of valuable experience in the field.

The program will run for 15 weeks on Tuesdays from 6 to 9 PM beginning Jan. 9, 2018, and ending on April 17, 2018. The course material has 15 lessons, so there will be roughly one lesson about every week. The electronic course material will be purchased at a group rate from ASM International and is included in the course fee.


The program fees for this course are broken down in the "PRICING" section below, including the cost of the course notes from ASM International. If you took this course at ASM headquarters in Ohio in their 4-day format it would cost about $2,500 USD plus travel and lodging and the instructors would not have the Alberta experience that we offer.

Course materials (electronic notes), and a dedicated online chapter class are included in the course. The online class gives the students access to the accredited version of the course so that they can earn 3.0 Continuing Education credits. The online class can also be used as a forum for information-sharing and out-of-class activities. The course will also include membership in ASM International if you are not already a member; this itself is over a $125 value. For ASM members, the course will include a 1-year extension of your membership.

If you or your staff wish to upgrade your knowledge through continuing education we encourage you to enroll now. It will be at least two years before we will be able to repeat this course offer. Successful completion of the course will include an internationally recognized completion certificate.

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

• Identify the eight major forms of corrosion and which are of concern for your applications
• Relate the occurrence and severity of corrosion to the natural driving forces
• Describe common corrosion test methods for your applications
• Avoid many of the design traps that speed corrosive decay
• Recognize applicable corrosion control techniques and their limitations
