Senior Internal Corrosion Technologist Certification

Internal Corrosion for Pipelines – Level 2 Course

The Senior Internal Corrosion Technologist should have a thorough understanding of electrochemical and corrosion principals, field testing, laboratory analysis, monitoring techniques, and mitigation strategies. They should also be capable of comprehensive environment assessments required to develop and manage internal corrosion control programs, have sufficient knowledge and experience to determine corrective action for high-level internal corrosion problems within a pipeline system, be able to implement internal corrosion integrity programs as directed, and be able to conduct and direct all phases of ICDA.

The course focuses on data interpretation, analysis, and integration, as well as criteria for determining corrective action for high-level internal corrosion problems within a pipeline system, will be covered in detail. Classroom instruction consists of lecture, group exercises, and cases studies.

Who should pursue and apply?

Candidates will have a firm grasp of internal corrosion and assessment methods, including both direct and indirect methods. Successful candidates will also have knowledge of locating internal corrosion damage, system evaluation, and monitoring strategy and techniques.

The successful candidates will also understand internal corrosion mitigation methods, including selecting the appropriate methods, implementing these methods, and determining their effectiveness. Long-term integrity management and data integration is also important.

    Approved Senior Internal Corrosion Technologist application

Start Your Journey

Certification candidates have four (4) years to complete all requirements, including successful completion of the exam, and an approved application with the required work experience and education requirements.

Certification exams

Certification requirements include case-based and theory exams delivered via computer-based testing (CBT).

The multiple-choice CBT exam is scheduled separately from the course and delivered via Pearson VUE. The initial CBT exam is included with the course registration. Any Exam retake will incur additional cost to the applicant.

Renewal requirements

An approved recertification application is required every 3 years. The work experience requirement for renewals for all certifications is one and half (1.5) years for the most recent three (3) year period. Additionally, some certifications have other requirements related to responsibility in charge.

As you prepare for renewal, please visit My Certification Portal to log and manage your work experience and Professional Development Hours (PDH's) needed. Your work experience and PDH's will be submitted as part of your renewal application but you can input PDH's at any time. See the certification renewal guide for PDH's requirements, our sample training PDH guide, and our PDH how-to videos.

Certification holders are required to pay a non-refundable processing fee for renewal.

NOTE: AMPP reserves the right to return any incomplete applications or those that do not meet the requirements. All application fees are non-refundable. To avoid processing delays or forfeiture of fees, please ensure that the application is complete, meets all the requirements and payment has been received.
