Passive Fire Protection (PFP) Coating Inspector (Epoxy) Level 2 – Classroom
Why attend this course?
The changing market dynamics and a number of PFP failures on major new construction projects will dictate the need for a more rigorous fire protection coatings Inspector course in order to further improve competency in this safety critical area of our market. The Institute of Corrosion and PFPNet have collaborated to develop the first detailed training programme for inspectors and technicians, written and produced by experts in this field who have extensive, practical ‘real world’ experience.
The purpose of this course
The purpose of this NEW course is to train and examine Inspectors of epoxy intumescent Passive Fire Protection (PFP) on the inspection of common types of epoxy coatings used to protect against hydrocarbon fires on installations for both on and offshore facilities.
It has been agreed by PDTC (ICorr) to add an experience assessment to all ICorr certifications for personnel engaged in painting and coating inspection. If certification is required, candidates must as a minimum have held ICorr Painting Inspector Level 1 or Coating Inspector Level 1 for a period of two years. It is possible to transition across from other certification schemes here. If a suitable qualification is not held, then dispensation to gain certification may be given if an individual has 5 years’ experience relating to painting or coating inspection.
This course assumes all candidates hold ICorr Painting or Coating Inspector approval (any level) and therefore have a knowledge of inspection philosophy, surface preparation, anti-corrosion coatings and how to use common inspection instruments. The course will cover the inspection of modern types of Passive Fire Protection as found on hydrocarbon installations for both on and offshore facilities. This will include structural members, decks and bulkheads and storage or process tanks and associated pipework. Mechanically fixed methods are not covered.
