Institute of Corrosion Online Recertification



If you hold a coatings certificate accredited by the Institute of Corrosion (ICorr), you are required to revalidate your certificate by an online assessment.

The validity of a certificate is normally five years from the date of certification, and the expiry date is indicated on the certificate and/or wallet card.

Expiry of your certification means that you will no longer be certified by ICorr to undertake inspections. To ensure that you continue to meet industry standards and stay competitive in your field, regular recertification is crucial.
