Corrosion Management and Sustainability - Virtual

October 20 - 22, 2020
2 p.m. – 4 p.m. CST (7 hour course held over 3 days with breaks throughout)

This virtual Corrosion Technical Series (CTS) Short Course event delivers seven hours of content over three days focused on how implementing a corrosion management system (CMS) leads to asset longevity and sustainability. Join us as we hear from five thought leaders throughout the energy sector, coatings, and academia. They will share their insights, lessons learned, and best practices on identifying gaps in your existing CMS and sustainability processes so you walk away equipped with the tools, knowledge and existing frameworks for corrosion control.

View this event from the comfort of home while engaging with fellow students. Then get answers from the speakers on the challenges you're facing in the industry during the Q&A portion.

Course highlights

This fully virtual Corrosion Technical Series (CTS) focuses on how implementing a corrosion management system (CMS) leads to asset longevity and sustainability. 

Held in two-hour segments over three days, learn how the decisions made today as far as materials selection, design, and the intended service life of an asset impact future sustainability. Experts will describe how to leverage knowledge of materials selection, corrosion management, and asset and corrosion management put a corrosion management strategy into practice within your organization by speaking about corrosion in terms of business impact. You will walk away with an understanding of the tools, knowledge, and existing frameworks available for corrosion control and how to either alter your company’s existing strategy or how implementing a corrosion management strategy ensures your company is operating in a sustainable manner.

Featured lecturers

  • Christopher Taylor, DNV GL
  • Sandy Williamson, Williamson Integrity Services
  • Florent Bocher, Southwest Research Institute 
  • Rick Eckert, DNV GL
  • Elaine Bowman, NACE International

Learning objectives

  • Recognize how materials selection can impact the longevity of assets and which materials are more susceptible to corrosion and degradation over time.
  • List best practices when implementing a corrosion management and sustainability strategy
  • Discuss how decisions made today regarding materials selection, design, and asset service requirements impact future sustainability
  • Describe the Corrosion Management System Framework
  • Recall the standard and studies (IMPACT Study and Cost of Corrosion Study) available that provide the framework for a corrosion management and sustainability strategy

Topics include

  • How to implement a corrosion management strategy within your organization.
  • View sustainability as part of a corrosion management practice.
  • Prevent assets from becoming a hazard to the environment throughout its lifecycle.
  • Learn the data behind making key financial decisions related to implementing a corrosion management and sustainability strategy from the cradle to the grave (or cradle to cradle).
  • Establish corrosion management systems for assets using an existing CMS framework developed and published as an industry standard. 
  • Modify existing processes to address the elements identified in this framework or use to build a CMS from the ground up.
  • Corrosion management extends from modeling, controlling, monitoring, inspecting and mitigating a system (e.g. infrastructure such as bridges and highways through to medical implants and electronic devices such as smartphones) to extend its service life.
