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.

• Wharves, pilings and walls
