Cathodic Protection Technician Marine Metallic Structures Course – Level 2

Level 2 CP Senior Technician Course, Marine Metallic Structure

Why attend this course?

Certification of cathodic protection personnel competence is a requirement for the cathodic protection industry throughout Europe in accordance with BS EN 15257 (soon to become an ISO Standard).  This includes all personnel i.e. Technicians, Senior Technicians/Junior Engineers, Field Engineers, Designers and Consultants carrying out cathodic protection duties such as survey, design, installation, testing, monitoring and maintenance within the UK and Europe. With the ISO this will be international.

This course and examination, for Level 2 Senior CP Technicians, is in compliance with BS EN 15257 and suitable for candidates with a minimum Level 1 experience in cathodic protection, or with Dispensation from ICorr based on education, professional qualifications and experience to bypass Level 1, but note that full Certification to Level 2 by ICorr requires a minimum of four year’s approved marine CP experience (less with a higher level education). The course is likely to be of particular value to, in addition to Level 1 Technicians in this or other sectors:

  • Level 2 Senior Technicians Certificated in the Buried or Steel in Concrete sectors
  • Engineers in the offshore Oil and Gas sectors involved in cathodic protection
  • Engineers and Inspection and Maintenance personnel in the Offshore Wind industry

The location of the course provides special interest allowing for practical measurements to be taken on site at the Harwich International Port Ltd. Particular thanks are due to Dean Tatum, Port Engineer.

Course Content

The topics of this course are fully set out and described in BS EN 15257 for Level 2 at Annex B1 and B3 and cover the application of cathodic protection (CP) to the following marine structures:

  • Harbours
  • Wharves, pilings and walls
  • Jetties
  • Subsea structures
  • Offshore Wind Foundations
  • Offshore pipelines (submerged and buried)
  • Offshore platforms
  • Ship external hulls

The course will enable candidates to learn the key skills detailed in BS EN 15257. On completion, candidates should have a good general knowledge of the principles of corrosion, electricity and cathodic protection, the significance of coatings and their influence on cathodic protection and

a detailed knowledge of cathodic protection test procedures and safety issues. The candidates should, after the course, be competent to perform cathodic protection tasks according to established or recognised procedures. After the course, the Candidates should be able to undertake cathodic protection design work under the supervision of an individual certificated to Level 3. Subject to local regulations. An individual Certificated to Level 2 may undertake simple cathodic protection design work as described in annex B of the Standard, according to established procedures in a known environment, without supervision.

The rules governing training, examination and certification are set out in ICorr REQ DOC (CP). For more information regarding both of these contact trainingsolutions@imeche.org or visit http://www.icorr.org/education_training, CP certification scheme.

 

How do I obtain Certification?

Certification is awarded to those candidates who:

  1. Have undertaken a minimum of 40 hours approved training. This course, with its supplied pre-course study provides this approved training;
  2. Sit and pass the examination (held on the Friday of the course).

Cathodic Protection of Reinforced Concrete Distance Learning Course Level 2 – ONLINE

Cathodic Protection of Reinforced Concrete Distance Learning Course Level 2 – ONLINE

 

Why attend this course?

Corrosion of steel in concrete is a major threat to infrastructure the world over. Cathodic protection is recognised as an economical method of repairing concrete subject to the commonest cause of corrosion. In order to address the levels of technical competence required to carry out a successful installation a British and European Standard has been produced (BS EN 15257) that outlines the levels of training and education required for personnel. There are 3 levels of personnel described in the standard. On a simple basis, Level 3 personnel produce designs and specifications for cathodic protection systems and interpret results, Level 2 personnel produce method statements that Level 1 personnel follow. The standard also outlines the four sectors that cathodic protection is employed, i.e. reinforced concrete, buried and submerged structures, immersed structures and tank internals. In response to this the Institute of Corrosion and the Corrosion Prevention Association have combined to produce a syllabus, course notes and examination that achieve the requirements of the European Standard. This course relates to Level 2 certification for cathodic protection personnel in reinforced concrete.

Distance Learning Training Modules For the award of the Certificate of Competence

All five modules must be completed, together with coursework (short answer questions), within 18 months of registration. A certificate of achievement will be awarded upon satisfactory completion of each module. Start dates are flexible. The course has been prepared in conjunction with the Institute of Corrosion Professional Development and Training Committee and the Corrosion Prevention Association. The certificate will demonstrate the required level of training has been achieved in accordance with EN 15257 with respect to a level 2 cathodic protection technician for reinforced concrete. In order to become a certificated level 2 cp technician in reinforced concrete an exam must be sat. The exam is provided by the Institute of Corrosion’s course provider. Currently this is Argyll Ruane, based on Rotherham, UK. The exam must be sat at their examination centre in Rotherham. Individual modules may be undertaken for CPD purposes. Modules 1 to 3 represent the core subjects for cathodic protection. Modules 4 and 5 represent the sector specific items. Each module will involve approximately at least 10 hours of study. The formal assessment will form part of the 10 hours of study including coursework. An external examiner will review the coursework. Start dates are flexible, with modules due for completion within 30 working days of receiving the course materials.

Distance Learning Training Modules For the award of the Certificate of Competence

All five modules must be completed, together with coursework (short report/analysis), within 18 months of registration. A certificate of achievement will be awarded upon satisfactory completion of each module. Start dates are flexible. A number of practical experiments are described. In order to undertake these experiments a digital voltmeter will be required along with come common metals, specifically iron, stainless steel, galvanised steel, copper and carbon (pencil leads). The course has been prepared in conjunction with the Institute of Corrosion Professional Development and Training Committee and the Corrosion Prevention Association. The certificate will demonstrate the required level of training has been achieved in accordance with EN 15257 with respect to a level 1 cathodic protection technician for reinforced concrete.
