An Introduction to Cathodic Protection
This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to cathodic protection for underground structures such as tanks and pipelines. It covers the two principal methods used to mitigate corrosion: the sacrificial anode and impressed current systems. It introduces you to the nine steps in designing a sacrificial anode system, the thirteen steps in designing an impressed current system, and the field testing requirements needed for both.
This 2 PDH online course is intended for engineers and other construction professionals with a current or prospective need to understand the fundamentals of protecting underground structures such as tanks and pipelines from corrosion using sacrificial anode and impressed current cathodic protection systems.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Learn about the site testing requirements needed to design cathodic protection systems
- Learn how to calculate current requirements based on coating efficiency and current density
- Learn about the nine steps in designing a sacrificial anode system
- Learn about the thirteen steps in designing an impressed current system
- Learn how to calculate the number of anodes needed in both sacrificial anode and impressed current systems
- Learn how to calculate system life expectancy for sacrificial anode systems
- Learn how to calculate rectifier voltage for impressed current systems
