Cortec® continues to reinforce its position as a global leader in corrosion control solutions by offering educational courses designed for the construction industry. As part of this initiative, Cortec® has recently registered and been approved as a “passport” level continuing education
system provider (CES) with the American Institute of Architects (AIA)!
Cortec® has always been keen on providing educational services to construction professionals regarding corrosion inhibitors and the role they play in improving the durability of concrete and steel structures. Cortec’s presentations and educational offerings have generally been delivered in a variety of formats and venues including “Lunch and Learns,” individual meetings, virtual seminars, industry events and trade shows, and more. To add even more value to these opportunities, Cortec’s presentations now earn attendees education credits that can be used toward renewing individual professional registration licenses in different jurisdictions. Cortec’s accredited educational content will be available in person, online, live, or on demand anywhere in the world.
Currently registered Cortec® MCI® courses offer participants elective learning units and Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) learning units.
The courses primarily discuss the corrosion challenges in construction and the role of corrosion inhibitors in mitigating these problems. The following topics are among the offered courses:
• How corrosion happens in concrete
• Service life modeling to predict the serviceability of a concrete structure
• An introduction to corrosion inhibitors including their types, mechanisms, applications, and limitations
• Testing and verification of corrosion inhibitor performance
• Global case histories where corrosion inhibitors have been used successfully
Registered courses are being offered to all construction professionals and can be requested on the Cortec® MCI® website at this link: https://www.
