Implement Fundamentals of Corrosion and Corrosion Prevention

Corrosion is a multidisciplinary issue affecting almost all industrial sectors around the world. Losses due to corrosion are enormous and the economic impacts are significant, highlighting the dire need for a proactive approach to corrosion prevention and control. However, the lack of knowledge and experience in corrosion and corrosion protection among local technical managers, designers, engineers, and technicians remains one of the main obstacles to effective action in the industry.

This module covers the fundamentals of corrosion-related issues in the industry and is designed to equip participants with the basic fundamentals of corrosion and its evaluation. It mainly covers the following three key topics:

Corrosion Fundamentals and Consequences

This includes the dangers associated with corrosion, different types of corrosion and their mechanisms, and the basics of the corrosion process.

Overview of Corrosion Control and Rectification

This session starts with an introduction to corrosion control methods, followed with details of surface preparation according to standards, coating application, quality control/inspection, and corrosion rectifications. Case studies on corrosion problems arising from coating failures will also be shared during classroom lectures.

Corrosion Characterisation and Testing

This section covers corrosion testing and characterisation techniques and procedures in industrial practices. Participants will get the opportunity to gain hands-on experiences via laboratory sessions and field tests commonly used for corrosion testing/investigations. Relevant international standards for field and laboratory accelerated tests will also be studied.

The comprehensive structure of this module incorporates classroom lectures, hands-on experimental work, and suitable case studies to represent a wider cross-section of the rudiments and evaluation of corrosion.

Who Should Attend

The module will be beneficial to technical managers, designers, engineers, and technicians dealing with corrosion-related issues at their respective fields of employment. Given the interdisciplinary nature of this subject, the personnel could be from any of Singapore’s industrial sectors including, but not limited to, oil and gas, marine, chemicals, food and beverages, manufacturing, infrastructure (power, water, roads, and transport), and construction, etc.

Why This Course

Why This Course

The module equips participants with the basic knowledge and skills critical for the evaluation of real-time corrosion-related issues and for specifying pertinent remedies/preventive approaches to combat the problems. This will help them to not only upgrade their professional skills, but also enhance their career growth opportunities.

For companies, the benefits of having a more knowledgeable workforce are three-fold: It would help reduce potential operational failures/damages, improve overall efficiency, and increase operational savings.

    Eligible for SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC)

    SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC)

    The SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC) was first introduced during the Singapore’s Budget 2020 and then recently expanded to a larger group of employers in Budget 2022. It encourages employers to invest in enterprise transformation and capabilities of their employees. Eligible employers will receive a one-off S$10,000 credit to cover up to 90% of out-of-pocket expenses on qualifying costs for supportable initiatives, over and above the support levels of existing schemes.

    Submission of SFEC Claim

    Employers are required to submit their SFEC claims manually via its microsite if they fulfil any of the following scenarios:

    • Employers have sent their foreign employees (excluding foreign employees who hold Long-Term Visit Pass Plus) for training on a SFEC-eligible course;

    Employers can only submit the claims for SFEC after their employees have completed the training course(s). Click here to download the SFEC Claim e-guide.
    NOTE: You will require a Corppass account with "EPJS_User" role assigned prior to login to your account to manage your claims.

    If you are unsure whether your company is eligible for SFEC, you may submit an enquiry to Enterprise Singapore (ESG) via here for their response.
