The courses and seminars, which will be run in conjunction with the Australasian Concrete Repair Association (ACRA), are aimed at providing attendees with information and guidance about ways to combat and manage corrosion in both their equipment and facilities.
The ACA’s course also aims to provide participants a foundation of knowledge about the corrosion of both reinforcement materials and concrete and has been updated to provide an understanding of the mechanisms of corrosion, protection and repair of reinforced concrete structures and buildings.
The training courses will run during March in Melbourne, June in Sydney and September in Brisbane.
The ACA has also announced the dates of its NACE Cathodic Protection (CP) 1 and 2 courses and SSPC Concrete Coatings Inspection course.
The NACE CP courses are comprehensive programs designed to educate professionals in industries such as pipelines and bridges, tanks and well casings, wastewater systems and the maritime and offshore industries. These courses will be conducted during April and May in Sydney and September in Brisbane.
The SSPC Concrete Coatings inspection course has been developed in association with the U.S. Society for Protective Surfaces (SSPC) to train individuals in the proper methods of inspecting surface preparation and installation of protective coatings on concrete structures and facilities.
