This online engineering PDH course provides basic information on the chemical interaction taking place during the corrosion process between the environment and the corroding metal. It also describes preventive measure to minimize or control the corrosion process.
Uncontrolled corrosion can cause many serious problems. Corrosion occurs continuously, and every metal in every facility is subject to some type of corrosion. Even though corrosion cannot be eliminated, it can be controlled.
This 4 PDH online course is applicable to chemical and environmental engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility operators who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the theory of corrosion.
- Corrosion theory
- General corrosion
- Crud and galvanic corrosion
- Specialized corrosion

This online engineering PDH course presents each type of coating resin or binder categorized by its film-forming mechanism, different types of pigments, and the various solvent families. It also discusses drying oils which are an integral part of some coating formulations, as well as, driers that aid in the drying reaction. Furthermore, it describes miscellaneous additives that are formulated into many coatings for specific purposes. It also provides guidance on powder coatings, thermal spray organic and inorganic coatings, and galvanizing tapes and wraps.
This course also presents a systematic approach to coating selection for new construction and maintenance painting. It details the criteria for selecting a coating system based on the service environment(s), surface preparation requirements, and options for coating application. Finally, it discusses other considerations such as VOC concerns, coating cost, supplier recommendations, ease of application, and maintainability.

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapters 4 and 5 of the "Panting: New Construction and Maintenance" engineering manual, published by the United States Army of Corps of Engineers (USACE), Publication Number EM 1110-2-3400.
This online engineering PDH course presents the technologies, techniques, advantages and limitations, equipment, typical coating types involved, and safety considerations for each type of application method.
The choice of an application method depends on the type of coating to be applied, the type and size of surface to be coated, and governing environmental regulations. There are various methods of coating application, including brush application, roller application, conventional spray, high volume-low pressure spray, airless spray, plural component spray, and electrostatic spray.
Approximately 85 percent of all premature coating failures are a result of poor surface preparation, inadequate mixing, thinning, and/or poor coating application. Onsite quality control inspection during surface preparation and coating application procedures can help prevent failures of these types. Proper inspection techniques must be combined with knowledgeable instrument use, good common sense, and thorough documentation of work activities and inspection checkpoints to help ensure specification compliance. The amount of inspection and the specific inspection checkpoints will vary with the type and size of the coating project. This course presents eleven quality control inspection procedures as follows:
- Pre-surface preparation inspection
- Ambient conditions
- Compressed air cleanliness
- Surface profile
- Surface cleanliness
- Paint storage, mixing, and thinning procedures
- Application techniques
- Wet and dry coating thickness
- Pinhole detection

This online engineering PDH course describes the good practices for insulating basements in new and existing homes.
There are many considerations to account for when making decisions about insulation. Costs, codes, energy efficiency, pest control, moisture management; the list goes on. Coupled with the large variety of insulation options including mineral fiber, mineral wool, foam boards, foam sprays, polyisocyanurate, etc., it is important to be aware of what options best suit a project’s particular conditions.
Codes are also constantly changing. While it is beyond the scope of this course to provide a comprehensive view of all basement insulation codes, it does discuss many common codes relevant to basement insulation projects, as well as changes to codes in recent years.
